According to first statement : n = 12q + 6 According to second statement: n = 6p + r We are to find r..

I am not very sure on how you generated the statements ?Please explain.

See, there is formula : \[Dividend = Divisor \times Quotient + Remainder\]

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

and *remainder as 0..

Ok then how is the Q(x) p and q

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

@waterineyes what you given is true but there is two eqns and 3 unknowns... am I wrong?
 one year ago

waterineyesBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes 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...

n = 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 ? :)

jobsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
when 6,,,...remainder should be 0 !!!!!

tamtoan got the correct way..

i have options so we can put them and check ?

waterineyesBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
18, 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..

Thanks to all........ I never think of bunchy equations but only facts... My bad.... i thought how it is possibl to solve it... my bad,... but thanks I got it

Now you guys have pretty confused me lol

@waterineyes Now tell me the math behind this :(

I think @hba will be able to comprehend Ida behind it when you again check the first response of waterineyes

waterineyesBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Are you still not able to find the correct choice??

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

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

waterineyesBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Now can you factor out 6 from that ??
 one year ago

waterineyesBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
By using distributive property??
 one year ago

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

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

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

waterineyesBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
And 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??
 one year ago

waterineyesBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
See, 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??
 one year ago

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

Still not getting tell me @hba

waterineyesBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You have to find remainder no??
 one year ago

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

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

Sorry some issue with my internet connection,So the answer is 0 @waterineyes
