lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
the remainder should be less than 8*
anonymous
  • anonymous
remainder is zero
zzr0ck3r
  • zzr0ck3r
if the remainder was 0 would it not be y?

i think @KingGeorge is prob doing that.
KingGeorge

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."
KingGeorge
  • KingGeorge
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.

  • anonymous
yeah but isnt it 1000/8 which then equals 125 what do you do after that
KingGeorge
  • KingGeorge
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.

1000/7 remainder is what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
142
zzr0ck3r
  • zzr0ck3r
if its three its the third letter, 4 then 4th, 0 then last
anonymous
  • anonymous
142.8571429
KingGeorge
  • KingGeorge
"tuesday" only has 7 letters. So in this case, you want to find \[1000=7\cdot q+r\]you have \(q=142\). What is \(r\)?
zzr0ck3r
  • zzr0ck3r
we want remainder not dec
KingGeorge
  • KingGeorge
\[1000=7\cdot142+r\]\[1000=994+r\]Can you tell me what \(r\) is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
idk
KingGeorge
  • KingGeorge
\[1000-994=994-994+r\]Does this help?
zzr0ck3r
  • zzr0ck3r
1000- 142*7 = r
zzr0ck3r
  • zzr0ck3r
and we will have the rth letter
