As rijul007 showed, listing possible values of x is a great approach here.

To answer questions involving remainders, it's useful to be able to list possible values. So, here's the rule for this:

If N/D has remainder R, then the possible values of N = R, R+D, R+2D, R+3D, . . .
Note: N,D and R are non-negative integers.

Example: If N divided by 7 has remainder 3, then the possible values of N are as follows: 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, 38, etc

Cheers,
Brent
