# (a) If repeated divisons by 20,483 are performed, how many distinct remainders can be obtained? (b)When 5/20483 is wrieeen as a decimal, what is the maximum length of the repeating section of the representation?

To determine

(a)

The number of distinct remainder if repeated divisions by 20483 are performed.

Explanation

Given information:

The repeated divisions by 20483 are performed.

Calculation:

The repeated divisions by 20483 are performed.

It is known that quotient-remainder theorem states that remainder must lie between 0 and divisor1.

And it is given in question that it is a repeated division by 20483 which means it is not going to terminate

To determine

(b)

The representation of the maximum length of the repeating section when 5/20483 is written as a decimal.
