### 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

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.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
