What is the remainder when integer n is divided by two? [#permalink]
Stem: $$n$$ $$mod$$ $$2$$

I) $$n=3k+(2p+1)$$ $$\implies$$ $$Remainder_n=0+1$$ OR $$Remainder_n=1+1$$ $$\implies$$ $$NS$$

II) $$n=5L+(2m+1)$$ $$\implies$$ $$Remainder_n=0+1$$ OR $$Remainder_n=1+1$$ $$\implies$$ $$NS$$

I&II) $$n=15x+5=5(3x+1)$$ Which is essentially the same issue as under I & II:
$$Remainder_n=1*1$$ OR $$Remainder_n=1*0$$ $$\implies$$ $$NS$$
