Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1See, there is formula : \[Dividend = Divisor \times Quotient + Remainder\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If I say 4 divides 12 leaving quotient as 3 and 0 : Then we can represent it as : \[12 = 4 \times 3 + 0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and *remainder as 0..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I have assumed them as p and q in that two cases because we don't know them..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@waterineyes what you given is true but there is two eqns and 3 unknowns... am I wrong?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes we have 3 unknowns and this time I am remembering @mukushla because he is expert in finding 3 unknowns out of 1 equation given only.. Ha ha ha ha...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1n = 12q + 6 = 6(2q +1) so n is a multiple of 6 ...:) when you that a multiple of 6 divide 6...is there a remainder ? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tamtoan got the correct way..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have options so we can put them and check ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.118, 30, 42, 54 all leaves remainder as 6 when divided by 12.. So, you can easily see that they all are fully divided by 6, leaving remainder as 0..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well the answer is 0 but i could not understand the math behind it :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Till here you got : \[n = 12q + 6\]

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now can you factor out 6 from that ??

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1By using distributive property??

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[ab + ac = a(b+c)\]

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yep. Now if I say that \(n = 3\times 4\) then it means that 3 and 4 are the factors of n.. Okay??

hba

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so here the factors are 6 and 2q+1

waterineyes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And you must remember that factors divide the number fully leaving NO REMAINDER BEHIND.. If \(n = 3 \times 4\) then 3 and 4 both will divide n fully leaving remainder as 0.. Getting or more explanation you want??

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1See, here \(3 \times 4 = 12\) So here n = 12.. Now divide 12 by 3 first : Quotient  4 Remainder  0 Now divide 12 by 4: Quotient  3 Remainder  0 What did you get as remainder??

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It means that factors of any number will divide it fully leaving No Remainder.. It is obvious hba..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Still not getting tell me @hba

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You have to find remainder no??

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That you have found I think... Why do you want to go next in this??

waterineyes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry, remainder of n/6 will be 0.. And not 6/n..
