NOTE: this is one of those questions that require us to check/test each answer choice. In these situations, always check the answer choices from E to A, because the correct answer is typically closer to the bottom than to the top.

For more on this strategy, see my article: https://www.gmatprepnow.com/articles/han ... -questions

E) 134
134 divided by 9 equals 14 with remainder 8

Answer: E
