I'm a math structures class at my college and even though i think the class is pointless its required for my degree and i have to take it. There is a problem in my book that I don't understand how to answer. The problem is: Determine each of the following without actually performing the division. Explain how you did it in each case. a.)Is 34,015 divisible by 17? The only hint he gave us is 34,015= 34,000+15. Apply Theorem 4-2(from the book) part a or c whichever is appropriate. However when i looked in the book this theorem that he told us to use is not there. Now I don't know what to do and its not like I can ask him because he is out of town on a business confernce until monday which is when the homework is due...can someone please help!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
