Hello from medical student

HI,
I am 19 male, studying for a medical degree in New Delhi, India.

I always had fun with mathematics problems, so i decided to join this forum.

Hope to have a good time in vacations..:D

Re: Hello from medical student

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.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
