    SAT divisibility

    SAT math divisibility

    Given two integers a (dividend) and b (divisor), we can divide one by the other with a remainder: a=qb+r
    the quotient, q indicates how many times b fits in a and the remainder r is what's left after that and hence

    Therefore for your question we have

    x=3*9+1=28

    Hope these help!!
