A simple one: (N+6)/53 = 0 I need to figure out what N needs to be

As the title says... trying to find N.

(N+6)/53 = 0

Thanks in advance!!

What makes $\displaystyle N+6=0~?$

Re: A simple one: (N+6)/53 = 0 I need to figure out what N needs to be

N cannot be a negative number

Re: A simple one: (N+6)/53 = 0 I need to figure out what N needs to be

wow... I didnt even notice my own typo till just now...

correction:

(N+6)/53 = 1

Sorry!!!!

Re: A simple one: (N+6)/53 = 0 I need to figure out what N needs to be

Ok so you will have 53=N+6 and what does N equal from that simple equation??

Re: A simple one: (N+6)/53 = 0 I need to figure out what N needs to be

Im not at all asking this right....

(N+6)/53 = "the lowest possible whole number"

man its been a long day.

Re: A simple one: (N+6)/53 = 0 I need to figure out what N needs to be

Multiply both sides by 53, then subtract 6 from both sides to solve for *N*.

Re: A simple one: (N+6)/53 = 0 I need to figure out what N needs to be

look at what i said 53=n+6 and that gives you n=53-6 looks simply to me doesn't it?

You all answered perfect. Thank you.

To add another loop.... N also has to be divisible by either 53 or 60.

It depends on how the whole numbers are defined. I was taught that they are {0,1,2,3,...}, but in some contexts they are synonymous with the natural numbers {1,2,3,...}.

Re: A simple one: (N+6)/53 = 0 I need to figure out what N needs to be

In a mathematical definition whole numbers are 0,1,2...
