Answer:Step-by-step explanation:GivenAs we see, the number x is factor of 42, 84 and 126. The two-digit factors are:We have two possible solutions:Proof:ANSWER:We can express any no. in the form of

Dividend = divisor × quotient + remainder.So according to question,

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.
