when u divide n by 12 you get a remainder of 6 right. so what number do you divide from 12 to get 6
anonymous
  • anonymous
6
anonymous
  • anonymous
right?

@Henry.Lister do u know how to solve it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
what ur not understanding you need to find what n is
anonymous
  • anonymous
n/12 = 6 n = 72 therefore; 72/6 = 12
amriju
  • amriju
take an integer K...then we can write n as n=12*K+6....K can be changed depending on n...so now we divide n by 6 thats (12*K+6)/6=2K+1...remainder is 0
amriju
  • amriju
its remainder not quotient @pathosdebater
anonymous
  • anonymous
If the quotient is a whole number, then the remainder is obviously 0... I was showing how to find that out
amriju
  • amriju
note that 12K+6...always leaves a remainder 6 when divided by 12..this is the genaral form of the integer n
amriju
  • amriju
hey...but n/12 not=6 as u hav written ....u must hav overlookd @pathosdebater
anonymous
  • anonymous
what if the quotient is not a whole no.?
amriju
  • amriju
then u have a remainder not equal to 0
anonymous
  • anonymous
So n = 78
amriju
  • amriju
n cant have any specific value...what about n=114...divide it by 12....u hav a remainder 6...@pathosdebater
anonymous
  • anonymous
True
amriju
  • amriju
n=12*k+6..as i mentioned...k is any integer...so put k=1,2,3.....and u 'll get diff values of n
anonymous
  • anonymous
what about this one @amriju when n is divided by 5,the remainder is 6.What is the remainder when n is divided by 7?
amriju
  • amriju
did u make up the ques..?...the ques is wrong..
anonymous
  • anonymous
yup
anonymous
  • anonymous
i just want to know that if the quotient is not a whole no.then what wud be the solution of that question?
amriju
  • amriju
look...if the quetiont is not a whole number.. then u have a remainder...thats all...example..114/12...12*9=108..u have remainder 6..so the quo. is..9+(6/12)...thats 9.5 not awhole num...but 8/4....we have 4*2=8..rem=0...so quo=2+(0/4)=2..whole number
anonymous
  • anonymous
Examples: 12/5 leaves a remainder of 2. (12+4)/5 leaves a remainder of 1.
anonymous
  • anonymous
(x^3 - 2x^2 + 4x - 2)/(x-3) leaves a remainder of 19.
