i get 0...

we know that x=11k+3 where 11K=y

11k+3=19N+3

we know that x=11*19(K+M)+3

y=209

209/19 remainder 0

agree with above.

it has to be zero. x is a multiple of (11x19) plus 3. so y is a multiple of 19. so reminder is 0 if y is divided by 19.

Ok, i'm still kinda confused.

we know that x = 11y+3 & x = q19 + 3

11y+ 3 = q19 + 3

y = q19/11 ---

so when y /19 = q19/11 / 19/1 ..... have i totally go overboard with this one.

???
