Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3For 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."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3It'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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah but isnt it 1000/8 which then equals 125 what do you do after that

KingGeorge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3This 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3"tuesday" only has 7 letters. So in this case, you want to find \[1000=7\cdot q+r\]you have \(q=142\). What is \(r\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[1000=7\cdot142+r\]\[1000=994+r\]Can you tell me what \(r\) is?
