Not sure how to approach it really...

Thinking to take: average=sum/#of terms
sum=average * # of terms

1) would be insufficient

2) from this we can say that the sum of the intergers is divisable by 7. So what? :)

I would guess E on the test day.... :)

7 different integers between 1 and 100

(1) Range of remainders is 6

1,2,3,4,5,6,7 each div by 7 is 0,1,2,3,4,5,6 -> sum = 21
But 7,14,21,28,35,49,55 --0,0,0,0,0,0,6 -> sum = 6


(insuff)

(2) If they are consecutive.


1,2,3,4,5,6,7. Sum of remainders when each is divided by 7 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+0 =21

or 2,3,4,5,6,7,8 or 49,50,51,52,53,54,55, any consecutive combination of 7 numbers..they all turn upto be 21
Ans (B) , what is the OA

What is the sum of the remainders?
(1) The range of the seven remainders is 6.
(2) The seven numbers selected are consecutive integers.


Question: Seven number are selected: n1, ..., n7, Each divided by 7, What is the sum of the remainders?

Info(1): All remainders of number divided by 7 will be less than 7. INSUFF

Info(2): Assuming n, n+1, n+2, ..., n+6

Dividing by 7: = (1/7) x (n, n+1, ..., n+6) = (1/7) x (7n + (1+2+3+4+5+6))
= 7n/7 + (21/7) = n+3
The sum of the remainders = 3

B. is the answer.

(1) The range of the seven remainders is 6.
(2) The seven numbers selected are consecutive integers.


Condition 1:

Let's say we take 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 divide this by 7 then the remainders are
3,6,2,5,1,4,0 = 21... If we pick some different numbers like...

7,14,21,28,35,42,49 the remainders are 0 and hence the sum = 0

So condition 1 is insufficient.

Condition 2:

let say the first number is n
7 consecutive numbers are n, n+1,..,n+6

sum of remainder = (n + n+1 + n+2 + n+3 + n+4 + n+5 + n+6)/7
= (7n + 21)/7 = n+3

Therefore condition 2 is sufficient. Answer B

Seven different numbers are selected from the integers 1 to 100, and each number is divided by 7. What is the sum of the remainders?

The trick here is to know that remainder is always non-negative integer less than divisor 0\leq{r}<d, so in our case 0\leq{r}<7.

So the remainder upon division of any integer by 7 can be: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 (7 values).

(1) The range of the seven remainders is 6 --> if we pick 6 different multiples of 7 (all remainders 0) and the 7th number 6 (remainder 6) then the range would be 6 and the sum also 6. But if we pick 7 consecutive integers then we'll have all possible remainders: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 and their sum will be 21. Not sufficient.

(2) The seven numbers selected are consecutive integers --> ANY 7 consecutive integers will give us all remainders possible: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. It does not matter what the starting integer will be: if it's say 11 then the remainder of 7 consecutive integers from 11 divided by 7 will be: 4, 5, 6, 0, 1, 2, and 3 and if starting number is say 14 then the remainder of 7 consecutive integers from 14 divided by 7 will be: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. So in any case sum=0+1+2+3+4+5+6=21. Sufficient.

Answer: B.
