Hello, OPETH!

We need a LOT of clarification . . .

Quote:

Dividend a, division, b^2, divisior c, remainder 42 . [1]

a + b + c + d . What value least ? . [2]

. . a) 54 . . b) 53 . . c) 49 . . d) 55 . ., e) 50

[1] A division has: dividend, divisor,, and remainder.*quotient*

. . .In your problem, which is which?

[2] What is*d*?

None of the choices are appropriate.

Since the remainder is 42, the dividend must be at least 42.

Since the remainder is 42, the divisor must be at least 43.

Already we have: .

I just have a homework question I've been stuck on and hoping you guys can help me out a bit.

COnsider the number 48. If you add 1 to it, you get 49, which is a perfect square. If you add 1 to its (1/2), you get 25, which is also a perfect square. Please find the next 2 numbers with the same properties. like 48+1=49 (perfect square)

48/2=24, 24+1=25 (perfect square)

Thank you so much!
