By the way....has anyone heard of the riddle in which an egg-seller's eggs break and he tells how many eggs he had as follows...

"If counted in 2s, 1 remain

If counted in 3s, 2 remain..."

or would anyone like me to put the problem?

Hi anandbrar;

Welcome to the forum! That is a problem best solved by the Chinese remainder theorem.
