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

    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,...}.
