From the question X = 7H+3.
Since H is an integer. Put H=0,1,2,3,4,5,6....etc.
Then X = 3,10,17,24,31,38,45,52,59.
Hence 52 is the answer.
D

\(x = 7h + 3\)

Now, The possible values of x are \({ 10, 17 , 24, 31, 38 , 45, 52....................}\)

Thus, Answer must be (D) 52

This question can be translated into the following one:

\(\frac{x}{7} = h + 3\)


x = 7h + 3 .

Option D: 7*7 + 3 = 52

So, x is 52.

The best answer is D.

We can create the equation:

x = 7h + 3

We see x is 3 more than a multiple of 7, so x could be 52 since 7 x 7 + 3 = 52.

Answer: D
