Quandaries
and Queries 

Dear Sir/Madam,
100x1 100x1  =  + 4 5 7 Why is 1 subtracted from 100x? What is the principle behind this? I have the difficulty in explaining to my teacher why the solution goes this way. Next week, i will have my defense and presentation for this problem and i am to present this to the whole schoo. Right now, this is my problem, on how to present this equation in an organized way. Thank you very much! 

Hi Benedict, You are to multiply 100 by some number so let that number be x. (It might turn out thet x is 1/y for some number y so you are actually dividing.) The instructions say that when you divide 100x by 5 the remainder is 1. That means that 1 less than 100x, when divided by 5, gives a remainder of zero. Thus
Likewise
The last part of the instructions say that the first of these integers is 4 more than the second. Penny
