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
