Problem
How many positive three-digit integers have a remainder of 2 when divided by 6, a remainder of 5 when divided by 9, and a remainder of 7 when divided by 11?
Solution 1
Looking at the values, we notice that , and . This means we are looking for a value that is four less than a multiple of , , and . The least common multiple of these numbers is , so the numbers that fulfill this can be written as , where is a positive integer. This value is only a three digit≤ integer when is or , which gives and respectively. Thus we have values, so our answer is
Solution 2
Let us create the equations: , and we know , it gives us , which is the range of the value of z. Because of , then , so (z+1) must be mutiples of 6. Because of , then , so (z+1) must also be mutiples of 9. Hence, the value of (z+1) must be common multiples of and , which means multiples of . So let's say , then , so . Thus the answer is ~LarryFlora
