When x is divided by 4, the quotient is y and the remainder is 1: x = 4y + 1.
When x is divided by 7, the quotient is z and the remainder is 6: x = 7z + 6.

Equate those two:
4y + 1 = 7z + 6;
y = (7z + 5)/4.

Answer: D.

x = 4y + 1

x = 7z + 6

4y = 7z + 5

\(y = \frac{7z+5}{4}\)

Answer = D

This is easy one.


Number = Quotient*Divisor + Remainder

x = 4y + 1 (i)
x = 7z + 6 (ii)

Equating (i) and (ii)
4y + 1 = 7z + 6
y = (7z + 5)/4

Option D

X is 13- one way to come with the number is just through trial and error- if x is 13 then z is 1 and y is 3- only D solves for Y

Thus
"D"

Hi All,

This question can be solved in a couple of different ways, but you would likely find the algebra to be fairly straight-forward. From the first two sentences, we can create the following 2 equations:

X/4 = Y remainder 1
X = 4Y + 1

X/7 = Z remainder 6
X = 7Z + 6

Now we can set the two equations equal to one another:

4Y + 1 = 7Z + 6
4Y = 7Z + 5
Y = (7X+5)/4

Final Answer:

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
