Problem: Find the least number, N, such that the remainder of N/a[n] is a[n] - 1 for a[n] = (2,3,4 ... 9,10). Solution: one less than the least common multiple of all of the a[n]'s. Proof: This is left as an exercise for the reader. After all, I'm an engineer, not a mathematician. I don't do proofs. Jeff Sonntag ihnp4!mhuxl!mhuxt!js2j
