# You can divide the numbers 111, 222, 333, 444 and 555 by 1, 3 and 111 and there will be no remainder. By what other number can you divide them by so that there is no remainder?

Tricky... zero?

Dividing by zero is an illegal operation, but I don't think it would leave a remainder ...

Oh, wait a minute. 3 into 111 goes 37 times.

111 / 37 = 3

222 / 37 = 6

333 / 37 = 9

444 / 37 = 12

555 / 37 = 15

It's 37 [/smug]

And 27 lots of 37 are 999.
This is why 1/37 is 0.027027027...
