Given: n=26q+13. Clearly n is divisible by 13 (since both 26q and 13 are), so 2n will also be divisible by 13, which means the remainder will be zero.

Answer: A.

If the remainder is 13 when the integer n is divided by 26, what is the remainder when 2n is divided by 13?

A. 0
B. 2
C. 3.25
D. 6.5
E. 13

we have the following equation as follows:
Assume x is quotient here,
n = 26x+13 --------------------(1)
ie n=13(2x+1)
It clearly disible by 13 so of course 2n is also divisible by 13 perfectly. So,the remainder is 0.
Answe (a) is the right choice.

Hi All,

This is a great 'concept' question, but it can also be answered by TESTing VALUES.

We're told that N is in integer and that when N is divided by 26 the remainder is 13. We're asked for the remainder when 2n is divided by 13.

IF...
N = 39
39/26 = 1r13

Thus, 2N = 78
When 78/13, we get 6r0

Final Answer:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
A


GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
