N is a positive integer. When N is divided by 3, the remainder is 2. When N is divided by 4, the remainder is 2. What is the remainder when N is divided by 12?

The number N has a remainder of 2 when divided by 3 and 4, so the number will have a remainder of 2 when divided by \(3\cdot 4 = 12\). Thus, N is of the form \(N = 12x+2\). This easily shows that the remainder when N is divided by 12 is \(\boxed{2}\) .

Hope this helped :P
