Given is a=5.125b=(5+0.125)b...
Here 0.125b is the remainder...
So 0.125b=r...
0.125 is nothing but \(\frac{1}{8}\)......
So \(\frac{b}{8}=r........b=8r\)...
D

a/b = Q + r/b

r/b = 0.125 = 1/8

b=8r

What if we pick numbers 82 for a and 16 for b? Then D isn't true (r = 0.125, b = 16), but the intent of the passage is preserved, right?

a/b = q + r
a/b = 5 + .125

r/b = 125/1000

r/b = 1/8

8r=b

\(\frac{82}{16} = 5 + \frac{2}{16}\)

r/b = 2/16 = 1/8 = 0.125.........D holds true in that case too. b = 8r (16 = 8 *2)

A. r=1
B. q>r
C. b=8
D. 8r=b
E. 8b=r


We can create the equations:

a/b = q + r/b

and

a/b = 5 + 0.125

a/b = 5 + 125/1000

a/b = 5 + 1/8

Thus,

r/b = 1/8

8r = b

Answer: D
