MATH I HAVE ASKED TWICE ALREADY!!!!!!!!!

posted by .

When dividing a 3 digit number by a 1 digit number for what divisors can you get a remainder 8?

  • MATH I HAVE ASKED TWICE ALREADY!!!!!!!!! -

    There will be more than one answer.

    To have a remainder of 8, the divisor must be greater than 8. The only single digit greater than 8 is 9, so 9 must be the divisor.

    Since 8 is 1 less than 9, the dividend needs to be one less than a multiple of 9. Candidates are values of 3 digits, as the problem states.

    The lowest 3-digit number satisfying the condition is 107 (which is 9x12 - 1); the highest is 998 (which is 9x111 - 1).

    Some answers:

    107 / 9 = 11 R8

    125 / 9 = 13 R8

    998 / 9 = 110 R8
