The number is a two-digit number.
• When is divided by , the remainder is .
• When is divided by , the remainder is .
What is the remainder when is divided by ?
Solution 1
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 . We now look for this one:
The number satisfies both conditions. We subtract the biggest multiple of less than to get the remainder. Thus, .
