A school bought many boxes of 100 candies each. The teachers opened all the boxes and gave 14 candies to each student, with 2 candies leftover at the end. The receipt shows the school bought 10# boxes of candies where the units digit, represented by #, was covered by a chocolate smudge. How many boxes of candies did the school buy?

[100 * n] mod 14 = 2

since n > 100, then:

[100*106] mod 14 = 2

Therefore, n = 106
