Could someone please explain how to go about this question? This is how I did... x is a number and leaves a remainder of 2 when divided by 8 x = 8q+2 , here q is quotient. Now asked to find x+9 values Sub 8q+2 value in x+9 then we get 8q+11 and now divided this value by 8 , we get 3 as reminder ( 11/8).

if x/8 leaves a remainder of 2, then (x+6)/8 leaves a remainder of 0, and (x+9)/8 leaves a remainder of 3

A. 0 B. 1 C. 2 D. 3 E. 4 x/8 leaves a reminder of 2 (x+9)/8 can be written as x/8 +9/8 x/8 leaves a reminder of 2 and 9/8 will leave a reminder of 1 Total reminder= 2+1= 3

A. 0 B. 1 C. 2 D. 3 E. 4 "If the positive integer x leaves a remainder of 2 when divided by 8"  means from x balls we make groups of 8 balls each and are left with 2 balls. When we bring another 9 balls in the mix, we will make 1 more group of 8 balls and now we will have 3 balls remaining. Answer (D) Check this concept here: http://www.veritasprep.com/blog/2011/04 ... unraveled/http://www.veritasprep.com/blog/2011/04 ... yapplied/
