    I'm thinking of a number.

    When I divide it by 3, the remainder is 2.
    When I divide it by 4, the remainder is 3.
    When I divide it by 5, the remainder is 4.
    When I divide it by 6, the remainder is 5.
    When I divide it by 7, the remainder is 6.
    When I divide it by 8, the remainder is 7.
    When I divide it by 9, the remainder is 8.
    When I divide it by 10, the remainder is 9.
    What is the smallest number with such a property?
