When we divide the number of seconds in December by the number of seconds in November, we get a remainder of R. If we then divide R by 11, what remainder do we get?

Thanks for helping! Also- please explain your answer so I can better understand it!

December has 31 days - November has 30 days = 1 day x 24 hours x 60 minutes x 60 seconds =86,400 seconds - the remainder when you divide number of seconds in December by number of seconds in November.

86,400 / 11 =7,854 this is the quotient.

86,400 - [7,854 x 11] = 6 this is the remainder.

Or, you can do it directly like this:

86,400 mod 11 = 6 - the remainder.
