If n>0 and r is the remainder then (n-1)*(n+1)/24 what is the value of r?

1) 2 is not a factor of n
2) 3 is not a factor of n

I still haven't found the way to solve this one, anyone?

C, r=0
since denominator 24 = 2^3*3, starting with n=5, there always be 2^3 and 3 in the numerator, so r=0

Thanks
