Problem 21
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
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 number 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
