    well as 9 is the largest one-digit number that we can divide by, it has 8 as the largest remainder of 8, but let me rethink about it they might be a trick :)

    so this applies to *any* digit number right? and not only 5.... if you divide any number by a one digit number, the largest remainder is always 8 ???
