Hi All,

To start, this question is a 'lift' of an Official Guide question:

OG2018 and

OG2019 pg. 170, question #154

We're told that P and J are positive INTEGERS, when P is divided by J, the REMAINDER is 14 and N/J = 134.08. We're asked for the value of J. This question has a great 'math shortcut' built into it that can help you to avoid a calculation-heavy approach, but you have to pay careful attention to the answer choices.

Since N and J are INTEGERS and N/J = 134.08, we know that N = 134.08(J). Thus, whatever J is, when we multiply that number by 134.08 we end up with an INTEGER. This means that J has to 'cancel out' the decimal point. Put differently, the units digit of J multiplied by 8 has to create a number that ENDS in a 0. Looking at the 5 answer choices, there's only one answer that would do that...

Final Answer:
