why?

how did you figure that out?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

n could equal any number

3/5 + 2/5 = 5/5 = 1 (integer) remainder is 3 8/5 + 2/5 = 10/5 = 2 (integer) remainder is 3 whichever n that works for the equation to be an integer has remainder 3 when divided by 5.

3/5 = 0 and the remainder is 3

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes, but if they asked for remainder you don't get to the decimal part

so what you are trying to say is?

13/5 + 2/5 = 15/5 = 3 13/5 = 2 r 3

8/5 gives remainder 3

3/5 gives remainder 3?

5 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yes, the reaminder is going to be 3.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ahh

5 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

so a fraction can have a remainder?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ahh

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

3/5 has a remainder of 3?

5 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

A fraction doesn't have remainder, but a number does, they didn't ask for a remainder for n/5, only they asked a remainder for n. 3/5, the n = 3. The remainder of 3 when divided by the number 5 is 3. And so is the remainder for all values of n allowed if the equation must be an integer. n = 3, 8, 13, 18,..
