Problem
Determine the number of integers such that and is divisible by .
Solution
We see a pattern when we look at the numbers that do fulfill this property. The first number is . Then . This follows a pattern. The first number being , and the rest being the previous: . This sequence then repeats itself. We hence find that there are a total of or numbers that satisfy the inequality.
