## basic question need help!

Ok, so I need to know how to figure out a certain number using a very simple
while loop. All we know is that when a person carries 2 objects at a time,
there is 1 leftover (also known as number % 2 = 1) ... the same goes for
when the person carries 3,4,5, or 6 at a time. If they carry them 7 at a
time then there are none leftover (number % 7 = 0). All I've been told is
that the number is over 300 and to use a while loop and very basic commands.
Thanks in advance for the help.

Try this,

public class DoIt {
public static void main(String[] args) {
}
}

Remember everyone, let's keep the gloves on! Also, especially if you are
going to take issue to a post, please have the courage to include a
legitimate email address at which you can be contacted (127.0.0.1 won't work
for a domain name). j.d. asked a legitimate question. j.d., if you still
need help, let the group know.

Thanks!

I have figured out the problem. I know not everyone on here is like that,
but it was still a bit upsetting to someone just trying to learn.

Thanks,

J.D.
