The quotient would be 4 with remainder 2

After solving I get 42/9 or 14/3.
Is this correct.

[(7^2)(2!)(4!)(6!)/9!]/14

= [7(2!)(4!)/(9)(8)]/14

= (4!)/(9)(8)

= 1/3

Quotient = 0
Remainder = 1

Is this right?

(7^2)*2!*4!*6!/9! =

= 7 * ((2 * 4) * 7 * 6!) * 3!/9!
= 7 * 3! * 8!/9!
= 42/9

Now dividing this by 14 yields 42/(9*14)

So Quotient = 0

Quotient can be found out this way but not the remainder.

To find the remainder you can not cancel out the numbers.

Example
40/15: Quotient = 2 and remainder = 10

But if you consider 40/15 = 8/3 then Quotient is still 2 but remainder is 2 instead of 10.

For the main question if you want to find the remainder then do not can cancel out any number. This gonna take a long time and I hope this doesn't appear on real GMAT.

so... for this particular problem do we have to multiply everything out or we can do the cancellations for everything except the 14 since we are suppose to divide by 14? (That might be easier?)

Calculate the terms on upper side and lower side sepertaly from the start and then find the remainder.
