X + Y = 5q1 + 4
X = 10q2 + 2

==> (10q2 + 2) + Y = 5q1 + 4
==> Y = (5q1 - 10q2) + 2
==> Y = 5 (q1-q2) + 2

So the remainder for Y is 2.

Note: q1 and q2 are quotients.

the guest was me...sorry did not login..also correcting a typo

X + Y = 5q1 + 4
X = 10q2 + 2

==> (10q2 + 2) + Y = 5q1 + 4
==> Y = (5q1 - 10q2) + 2
==> Y = 5 (q1-2q2) + 2

So the remainder for Y when divided by 5 is 2.

Note: q1 and q2 are quotients

Got 2 also.

1) x+y=5k+4

2) x=10j+2

3) y=5m+R. (Looking for R)

4) [1&2] y=5k+4 - 10j - 2 = 5(k-2j) + 2

Look at equation 3: y= (Some Integer)*5 + R
And this is what we get in equation 4.

Therefore the remainder R must be 2.

Got B too.

If X + Y when divided by 5 leaves rem 4, it should be *4 or *9 (Eg: 24 or 29)
If X when divided by 10 leaves rem 2, it should be *2 (Eg: 12)
Therefore, Y should be a *2 or *7 number (Eg: 12, 17)

Hence, Y when divided by 5 should leave a rem 2.

(* = some integer)
