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

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

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

AndyGadget has the correct answer.

This would be 71. 71 / 8= 8 + 7.

(8*8)+7=71.

Pie.

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

Pecan?

I have never met a pie I didn't like.

OK, maybe not mincemeat.

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

Dutch Apple, with ice cream. French Silk. Grasshopper.

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

Not a very good question?

....homework ?

7 more than a multiple of 8.

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

15, 23, 31...
