**Reiny**, Sunday, August 19, 2012 at 8:07amNow that he has the extra 5 marbles, his number must be a multiple of 13, that is, it divides evenly by 13

So obviously before he had the 5**his number must have had a remainder of 5**when divided by 13

e.g suppose he originally had 320

when divided by 13 we get 24 rown with 5 marbles left over. So he gets 5 from his friend and now has 325 , which divides by 13 to get 25 rows.

**Reiny**, Sunday, August 19, 2012 at 8:14amlet me try this again.

Now that he has the extra 5 marbles, his number must be a multiple of 13, that is, it divides evenly by 13

So obviously before he had the 5**his number must have had a remainder of 13-5 or 8**when divided by 13

e.g suppose he originally had 320

when divided by 13 we get 24 rown with 8 marbles left over. So he gets 5 from his friend and now has 325 , which divides by 13 to get 25 rows.

325÷13=25 R 0

324÷13 =24 R 12

323÷13=24 R 11

322÷13 = 24 R 10

321÷13 = 24 R 9**320÷13 = 24 R 8**

320÷13 = 24 R 7

etc
