(a) m/6 = x + 3 ==> cannot find m
(b) m/15 = y + 6 ==> cannot find m

b) m is divided by 15, remainder is 6

FROM 1

M= 6X+3 = 3(2X+1).......INSUFF

FROM 2

M = 15Y+6 = 3(5Y+2).....INSUFF

BOTH

5Y+2 = 2X+1

2X-5Y= 1

X IS 0 OR A +VE INTIGER, THUS X = 3,Y=1 ONLY SATISFIES

Guys,

I mistyped the second statement, it should read

b) 15 is divided by m, remainder is 6

I am extremely sorry I will take extra care next time
