What is the remainder when the positive integer x is divided by 8?
(1) When x is divided by 12, the remainder is 5.
(2) When x is divided by 18, the remainder is 11.

Is plugging in the only way to solve these god-dammed problems??

Remainders: 5,1

Remainders: 3,5,7, 1

FROM ONE

X = 12K+5

REMAINDER COULD BE (5, 1 , 5 , 1.......) INSUFF

FROM TWO

X = 18Q+11

REMAINDER COULD BE ( 3, 5 , 7 , 1 , .......INSUFF

BOTH TOGETHER

IT COULD BE 5 OR 1 .......INSUFF

E is my answer

Yezz, how do you get the list of remainders? Is plugging in for values of Q the only way?

I second that. I'm a little confused how we get the remainders.

Thanks,
