Read the following SAT test question and then click on a button to select your answer. 

When the positive integer n is divided by 5, the remainder is 0. What is the remainder when 3 times n  is divided by 5?

Answer Choices

Answer

Choice (A) is correct. When the positive integer n is divided by 5, the remainder is 0. It follows that n is a multiple of 5. Therefore, 3 times n is also a multiple of 5, and so the remainder when 3 times n is divided by 5 is likewise 0.
