Hi Jhim123
OE
We know that \(n <30\) or else \(30-n\) will be negative, resulting in a negative fraction.
We also know that n> 15
or else the fraction's denominator will exceed its numerator making the fraction unable to equal a positive integer value.
Substituting all values n from 15 to 30 gives us
integer values for n=15, 20, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29.
Counting them up, we have 7
