Tim is doing a cakewalk with 11 steps. He takes his first step on step 1 and takes a total of 139 steps, walking in a circle (so that after the 11th step he reaches the first step again). Which step of the cakewalk does he end on?

I assume:

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline 139 &=& \underbrace{12\times 11}_{\text{position }1} + 7 \\ \text{Tim end on position } 1 + 7 = 8 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
