### What is mean by modulus?

A modulus is the remainder after a number has been divided into
another. 3 divides into 10 with a remainder of 1. So 1 is the
modulus of 10 divided by 3.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### What is the smallest number that leaves a remainder of 1 when divided by 2 and a remainder of 2 when divided by 3?

5.
To leave a remainder of 1 when divided by 2, the number must be
odd.
To leave a remainder of 2 when divided by 3, the number must
also be two more than a multiple of 3.
The multiples of 3 which are odd are 1 x 3, 3 x 3, 5 x 3,
etc.
The smallest odd multiple of three is 1 x 3 = 3 ⇒ required
number is 3 + 2 = 5.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### What number has a remainder of 1 when divided by 6 and a remainder of 2 when divided by 8?

No number can satisfy these conditions:
To have a remainder of 1 when divided by 6, the number must be
odd (as all multiples of 6 are even and an even number plus 1 is
odd)
To have a remainder of 2 when divided by 8, the number must be
even (as all multiples of 8 are even and an even number plus 2 is
even)
No number is both odd and even.
→ No number exists that has a remainder of 1 when divided by 6,
and 2 when divided by 8.

###### Asked in Prime Numbers

### Is 178 prime or composite?

A prime number is a number that can only be divided by 1 or
itself. A composite number is a number which can be divided by a
number other than itself or 1 and not leave a remainder. 178
divided by 2, for example, equals 89 (89 + 89 = 178). Since 2 is
not dividing 178 by 1 or by itself and leaves no remainder, it is a
composite number.
