X/Y has a unknown remainder. Both X and Y are positive [#permalink] New post 25 Oct 2007, 05:54
X/Y has a unknown remainder.
Both X and Y are positive integers.
X/Y = 2.625

The unknown remainder can be 5 because it is divisible by .625.


My question: Why is the unknown remainder 5 divided by .625?

2.625 = 2 + 625/1000 = 2 + 5/8

I didn't understand your question, But if you write 0.625 as 625/1000=5/8 than it is clearly seen that 5 is remainder.

I hope this was something you were looking for...
