If x and y are positive integers, what is the remainder when x is divided by y?

1) when x is divided by 2y, remainder =4

2) when x+y is divided by y, remainder =4

I'm looking for the simplest solution. Thanks in advance!

B

If you think about it, y/y the remainder is always 0

so statement 2 says that (x + y)/y, the remainder is 4, is the same as x/y the remainder is 4.
