The numbers 1, 6, 11, 16, ... are written in order in a book, 50 to a page, beginning on page 1. The number 12346 will be written on page A)49, B)51, C)48, D)47, E)50

I've been working a long time, and I don't know what to do.

The series starts with 1 and then counts up by 5's.

There are 50 numbers to a page so the last number on page 1 would be 251 ~ aka 250 + 1

add the next 50 x 5 and the last number on page 2 would be 501 ~ aka 500 + 1

the last number on page 3 would be 551 ~ aka 750 + 1

and so on.

We can see that the last number on any page is (the page number times 250) + 1

So, which page would contain 12346

If you divide 12346 by 250 you get 49**.**384 so that locates 12346 on the first page past 49, or **page 50**
