Find all such Natural number n such that 7 divides

**Teacher:** This is simple case of modular arithmetic. Consider the set of all residues of modulo 7 and you will see a pattern

**Student:** Sure. modulo 7. The residues repeat after that since modulo 7 where .

We want mod 7 hence n must be an odd multiple of 3 or n = 6r + 3 for any nonnegative integer r.
