    Divisible? You mean dividible?

    798*19 = 15162

    15162/798=19

    Hmm, interesting.

    9.5 * 2 = 19
    9.5 * 84 = 798

    so you're answer would be 9.5.

    or something like that.

    **EDIT***

    798 / 19 = 42

    could it be ? i have no idea. My 2cents anyway =)

    Answer is 19 & 42

    798 / 42 = 19
    798 / 19 = 42

    I think Icebird is right, going by the statement "divisible by 798". Could the question be rewritten along the lines of:

    (?)/798 = 19.

    The answer would be 15162.

    OP that statement is mathematically incomprehensible. There's no # that can equal 19 except 19 itself, which is a prime # hence not divisible by anything other than 1 and itself.

    Wait, are you looking for the Divisor or what is divisible?

    I think what the OP is meaning to say is what gives an answer of 19 when divided by 798.

    I hope to god the original question isn't how the maths teacher asked it.

    Hehe thanks guys, I figured it out right after i posted. I told him its 1 and 19.. cause 1x19= 19 and there both divisors of 19... second part of the question is whats 19/798 which is 42... I hate how they word things these days in text books..I mean the math textbooks are written by mathematicians.. they should hire a writer to work along these peeps i think.. thanks alot guys

    Well it's 798/19 so be careful before criticizing the authors ;)
