Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
(1) In other words 500 is a multiple of K.
(2) This says 8 is multiple of K but that has nothing to do with 1000.
(combined) If 500 is multiple of K then you can divide further and see how far you can go with a multiple of 2 in the denominator. You end up with 125, this is where (2) comes in the picture, and you can see that K has to be divisible by at least by twice the 500, which is 1000.
(1) Let's say K is 500, thus 4K = 2000. 4K divisible by 2000. But 1000 is not a factor of 500.
(2) K = 320. K/8 = 40. Doesn't say anything about 1000 being a factor.
(combined) Since K has to be at least 2*500 = 1000, you can say 1000/8 = 125. And 1000/1000 = 1.
