When positive integer a is divided by positive integer b, yielding quotient q and remainder r, the result is 5.125. Which of the following must be true?

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


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)

We can create the equations:

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

So are we saying we are dividing 5125/1000? And then we write the equation dividend=(divisor*quotient)+remainder in terms of a,b,q and r; and then we can find what must be true?

Thank you in advance!

I didnt get this question: According to me A/B=5.125
5 125/1000= 5 1/8
5= q, 1=r, 8=b(divisor) therefore all the above answers looks true to me except the last one. Can somebody explain where I am going wrong???

Thanks in Advance

Since a/b = Q + r/b and a/b = 5 + 1/8:

We can say that r/b= 1/8
