492 / 3 = 164

492 / 4 = 123

Let us start out by finding the LCM.

From that point on, can you solve it, or would you like some more help?

Okay, so you take Twelve, right?

Then you do this:

_____

12)500

You solve and get 166 R2.

After that, you just 125/3.

So you would have:

41*12...

492?

Thanks Tom...riddle

Hi MagicKitten,

I saw you ask how this forum should be used. (earlier today)

How you and and Tom worked together on this thread is EXACTLY how it should be used.

To bad the asker was not involved but it doesn't matter.  It was fabulous that you stepped in. :)
