regarding the supplementary questions | Comment 3 of 7 |

I don't know the answers to these. It doesn't seem to be because of the year, as in requesting 2010, we have

x=31  y=53          numerator=3770  denominator=84        quotient =44  remainder=74

There isn't one for 2011, but for 2012 we have

 x=34  y=52          numerator=3860  denominator=86       quotient = 44  remainder=76
