1. ## Algebra Explanation Needed

Find the sum of two positive integers x and y such that dividing 3x + 5y gives a remainder of 4 and the sum x+y is minimal.

Thank you!

2. Are you trying to say:

$\dfrac{3x}{5y} = z+4$

$x+y = minimal~number$

Find x and y?

3. No. I know that the answer to X+Y=3 but i'm not sure why. I think it is (3x+5y)/7= z remainder 4
