n=1; a=(1457 % n);b=(1754%n);if(a==b, goto4,goto5);printa,b,n; n++; if(n<2000, goto1, discard=0;
Rem       n
0 0           1
2 2           3
8 8           9
5 5          11
26 26      27
5 5           33
71 71      99
269 269  297

So, the largest n = 297 with a remainder of 269

Thanks Heureka and guest.

I was wondering how to do this.  Modular arithmetic is one of the areas that I want to learn more about :)

It is a pity there is not a million hours in a day, I'd use 80% of them for learning things, and I'd still have time to goof off.  LOL.
