I don't understand what they're asking for here. Which of the following cannot be an integer for what?

Joana, they are asking which of the multiple choices is a fraction (not integer = fraction). Pick the smallest number divisible by 8 but not by 3, i.e., 8. Plug into x. Which one is fraction?

Lakeisha, the question is asking which of the choices can never be an integer (whole number), given that x is divisible by 8 (e.g., 8, 16, 24, ...) but is not divisible by 3 (i.e., NOT 3, 6, 9, 12, etc.)

You need to be signed in to perform that action.
