How many numbers between 1000 and 2000 leave a remainder of 3 when divided by 11 ?

 

$$\small{
\begin{array}{rcl}
n_1 \cdot 11 + 3 &\ge& 1000 \\
n_1 &\ge& \dfrac{1000-3}{11} = 90.6363636364 \\
n_1 &=& 91 \\\\
n_2 \cdot 11 + 3 &\le& 2000 \\
n_2 &\le& \dfrac{2000-3}{11} = 181.545454545 \\
n_2 &=& 181 \\\\
n&=& n_2-n_1+1\\
n&=& 181-91+1\\
\mathbf{n}&\mathbf{=}& \mathbf{91}\\\\
\hline
\end{array}
}$$

How many numbers between 1000 and 2000 leave a remainder of 3 when divided by 11 ?

 

$$\small{
\begin{array}{rcl}
n_1 \cdot 11 + 3 &\ge& 1000 \\
n_1 &\ge& \dfrac{1000-3}{11} = 90.6363636364 \\
n_1 &=& 91 \\\\
n_2 \cdot 11 + 3 &\le& 2000 \\
n_2 &\le& \dfrac{2000-3}{11} = 181.545454545 \\
n_2 &=& 181 \\\\
n&=& n_2-n_1+1\\
n&=& 181-91+1\\
\mathbf{n}&\mathbf{=}& \mathbf{91}\\\\
\hline
\end{array}
}$$

I prefer your second solution heureka; it's much more elegant!

Hi Heureka,

Yes Alan Heureka's 2nd answer is more elegant but Mellie may understand the first one much better 

I like both!
