**Question: 570**

**6.** When 23 is divided by 3, the remainder is *x*. What is the remainder when 23 is divided by 2*x* ?

A. 1

B. 2

C. 3

D. 4

E. 5

**Correct Answer:** C

**Explanation:**

**C** First find the value of *x*: 27 divided by 3 is 7, with 2 left over, so *x* = 2. 2*x* = 4 so divide 23 by 4: 4 goes into 23 evenly 5 times and there are 3 left over, so the answer is C, 3.
