    Answer:

    • x = 21 or x = 42

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given

    • 47 = mx + 5 ⇒ mx = 42
    • 91 = nx + 7 ⇒ nx = 84
    • 132 = kx + 6 ⇒ kx = 126

    As we see, the number x is factor of 42, 84 and 126. The two-digit factors are:

    • 42 = 1*42 = 2*21
    • 84 = 2*42 = 4*21
    • 126 = 3*42 = 6*21

    We have two possible solutions:

    • 21 and 42

    Proof:

    • 47/21 = 2 rem 5, 47/42 = 1 rem 5
    • 91/21 = 4 rem 7, 91/42 = 2 rem 7
    • 132/21 = 6 rem 6, 132/42 = 3 rem 6

    ANSWER:

    We can express any no. in the form of

    Dividend = divisor × quotient + remainder.

    So according to question,

    • 47 = px + 5, px = 42.
    • 91 = qx + 7, qx = 84.
    • 132 = rx + 6, rx = 126.

    So the two digits factors of 42, 84 & 126.

    42 = 42 × 1 = 21 × 2.

    84 = 42 × 2 = 21 × 4.

    126 = 42 × 3 = 21 × 6.

    So, there is two possible solution of x that is 21 & 42.
