A remainder of 3 when divided by 9 --> $$n=9q+3$$, where q is an integer $$\geq{0}$$.

$$9q+3<50$$ --> $$q<5\frac{2}{9}$$, hence q can take 6 values from 0 to $$5$$.

Or, one can just manually list the numbers of the form $$n=9q+3$$, which are less than 50: 3, 12, 21, 30, 39, and 48. Total of 6 numbers.

All numbers should be of the form 9c+3 where c is a constant.

Min is 3 for c=0
Max in 48 for c=5

The answer should be B = 6

Range of numbers is 50-0+1= 51.
Possible remainders= 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8
51/9 gives a quotient 5 and a remainder 6. This means that after completing 5 rounds from 0 to 8 ,it found numbers with remainders from 0 to 5 and this has 1 extra count for remainder 3.Hence it is 5+1=6

The first number when divided by 9 leaves a remainder of 3 is 3.
The last number below 50 when divided by 9 leaves a remainder of 3 is 48
so
(48 - 3)/9 + 1 = 6
