x = 5q + 1

x = 7k + 1

Think of a number which when divided by both 5 & 7 leaves a remainder of 1

Trick : Do LCM of 5 & 7 and add 1 to it...

x = 36

So, x = 5q + 1

Or, 36 = 5*7 + 1

7/7 will leave remainder of 0

Hence correct answer will be (A) 0

1,6,11,16,21,26,31,36

1,8,15,22,29,36


So x=35z+1

When x is divided by 5, then q will always be a multiple of 7.

So the reminder when q is divided by 7 will always be 0.

we know that x=5q+1 and x=7k+1

in other words, x is a multiple of 5 and 7 +1 for example 35 or 70 or 105 .....
in each case q is a multiple of 7 ====>7 or 14 or 21....

therefore \(\frac{q}{7}\) is equal to an integer. (remainder=0)

answer A

Hi,
We get two equations..
1) x=5q+1
2) x=7k+1...

This means 5q+1=7k+1......
Or 5q=7k..
This tells us that q is multiple of 7 and k is multiple of 5..
SO if you divide q by 7 or k by 5, remainder will be 0
