  1. Justin starts on a Sunday, and gets every ninth day off.
    So his days off, counting from Sunday, are always divisible by 9, therefore divisible by 3.

    Hannah gets a day off every sixth day from Monday, i.e. every 6n+1 days from Sunday, or never divisible by 3.

    Too bad for Justin, he will have to ask her out after work!

    (See how mathematics can be important for social relations!)
