8n+7

where n is any non-negative integer.  I'm sure of that.

What's -1 divided by 8?  Does 8 go into -1, -1 times with a remainder of 7?

-1*8 + 7 = -1

-1 mod 8 = 7

This would be 71. 71 / 8= 8 + 7.
(8*8)+7=71. 

That was my thought, except that in my experience the remainder is never more than 6.

Yeah, I may have been a little optimistic in my estimate, especially if Key Lime is involved somehow.

Lemon merange.  Or pecan or walnut subed for the pecan.  Or pumpkin.

A number ending in "111" (base two).  Duh.

Not a very good question?

7 more than a multiple of 8.

56? If you mean there is 7 left, 63?
