I WONDER (Posted on 2011-01-13) Difficulty: 4 of 5

Read carefully, then post your answer.


Can you provide a simple YES or NO correct answer to the question :
Is 1010101......101 (n ones interwoven with n-1 zeroes) evenly divisible (i.e. without remainder) by 1111(a string of n ones)?

Rem: n>1

my solution | Comment 1 of 10

11 does not divide 101
but 111 does divide 10101
since there is an example of where the statement is
both true and false, then we are unable to provide a simple
YES/NO answer, thus we must answer no to the overall question of "can you provide a simple YES or NO correct answer"

so my answer is NO
however I am open to seeing other interpretations of this question
