Solution
From the second bullet point, we know that the second digit must be . Because there is a remainder of when it is divided by , the multiple of must end in a in order for it to have the desired remainder We now look for this one:
The number satisfies both conditions. We subtract the biggest multiple of less than to get the remainder. Thus, .
Solution 2 ~ More efficient for proofs
This two digit number must take the form of where and are integers to However, if x is an integer, we must have So, the number's new form is This needs to have a remainder of when divided by Because of the divisibility rule, we have We subtract the three, getting which simplifies to However, so and
Let the quotient of in our modular equation be and let our desired number be so and We substitute these values into and get so As a result,
- Alternatively, we could have also used a system of modular equations to immediately receive
To prove generalization vigorously, we can let be the remainder when is divided by Setting up a modular equation, we have Simplifying, If then we don't have a 2 digit number! Thus, and
