125
it shoulld be less than 8
no 1000/8 equals 125
the remainder should be less than 8*
remainder is zero
if the remainder was 0 would it not be y?
it would be y
Sorry, I was not trying to give the answer, I just thought you guys were saying its wrong so I wanted to make sure...
how is it Y
?
imagine we were counting to 16 16/8 has a remainder of 0 notive the 16 letter is y
notice*
Where is the 16 coming from
just an example.
Can you list me the steps pleasee i really need help?
i think @KingGeorge is prob doing that.
For example, look at the sequence of letters thursdaythursdaythursdaythursdaythursdaythursday 8 16 24 32 40 48 Notice that every time the letter "y" appears, you see that it is in a position divisible by 8. This is because there are 8 letters in the word "thursday."
It's basically saying the same thing as labeling each number in the set \[\{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,...,997,998,999,1000\}\]With a letter. You start with the pattern "thursday" and every 8 letters, you repeat that pattern.
yeah but isnt it 1000/8 which then equals 125 what do you do after that
This means that since your word is 8 letters long, every eighth letter will be "y" starting with the number 8. What you want to do, is find the remainder, and not the quotient. So you have \[{1000}=8\cdot125+0\]So your quotient is 125, and your remainder is 0. Somewhat unintuitively, this means that the 8th letter in "thursday" will be the 1000th letter overall.
what if i wanna know the 1000th letter of Tuesday
1000/7 remainder is what?
142
if its three its the third letter, 4 then 4th, 0 then last
142.8571429
"tuesday" only has 7 letters. So in this case, you want to find \[1000=7\cdot q+r\]you have \(q=142\). What is \(r\)?
we want remainder not dec
\[1000=7\cdot142+r\]\[1000=994+r\]Can you tell me what \(r\) is?
idk
\[1000-994=994-994+r\]Does this help?
1000- 142*7 = r
and we will have the rth letter
Okay thanks
