n/12 = 6 n = 72 therefore; 72/6 = 12

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

If the quotient is a whole number, then the remainder is obviously 0... I was showing how to find that out

note that 12K+6...always leaves a remainder 6 when divided by 12..this is the genaral form of the integer n

amriju Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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

i just want to know that if the quotient is not a whole no.then what wud be the solution of that question?
 2 years ago

amriju Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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
