(A) -8
(B) -6
(C) -4
(D) 4

I solved it as: (19△9)△2) gives 4 (19△(9△2) gives 8 So, 4-8 should be -4. Ans C.

Since m△n represents the remainder of m+n divided by m-n, 19△9 represents the remainder of (19+9) divided by (19-9), which is the remainder of 28 divided by 10. Then, from 28=10(2)+8, the remainder becomes 8, and thus 19△9=8. 8△2 represents the remainder of (8+2) divided by (8-2), which is the remainder of 10 divided by 6. Then, from 10=6(1)+4, the remainder becomes 4, and thus 8△2=4.

I believe the answer is C- For all positive integers m and n, the expression m △ n represents the remainder when m+n is divided by m-n. What is the value of ((19△9)△2) - (19△(9△2)) ?- well, you have plug in 19 for M and 9 for N. For example

19∆9 = the remainder when (19+9) is divided by (19-9) = the remainder when 28 is divided by 10 = 8
So, (19∆9)∆2 = 8∆2 = the remainder when (8+2) is divided by (8-2) = the remainder when 10 is divided by 6 = 4 ------------------------------------------------------------- 9∆2 = the remainder when (9+2) is divided by (9-2) = the remainder when 11 is divided by 7 = 4
So, 19∆(9∆2) = 19∆4 = the remainder when (19+4) is divided by (19-4) = the remainder when 23 is divided by 15 = 8 -------------------------------------------------------------
