    I am learner and need help - Find k+n ?

    Hi there,
    I am trying to solve the below problem:

    If 72.42 = K(24+ n/100), where k and n are positive integers, and n < 100, then find k + n

    Please help me understand to solve this problem

    Thank-L

    If you arrange the equation as K=72.42/(24+n/100)
    So we ask 72.42 divided by what is an integer, K?
    72/24=3, and now we only need to fix the decimal part
    that is the .42/(n/100) also should be 3
    then n = 14
