# A number when divided by 357, leaves a remainder 39

A number when divided by 357, leaves a remainder 39. If the same number is divided by 17, the remainder will be

(a) 0

(b) 3

(c) 5

(d) 11

**Answer: (c) 5 **

**Solution:-**

Let the number be X.

Number divide by 357, leaves a remainder 39.

Then, X/357 + 39 = X

X – X/357 = 39

(357 X – X)/357 = 39

356 X = 39 x 357

X = 39 x 357/356

X = 39 (Approximately)

39 divide by 17 then remainder will be 5.

Hence, the correct answer is option (c) 5.
