Form into an algebraic equation?

If I have a question (for the purpose of this discussion) say:

"How many even numbers are there which are divisible by 7 but less than 50000?"

How do I write this as an algebraic linear (or polynomial) equation?

I don't actually get your question or the purpose of your question. But the number of such numbers are \[\left \lfloor{ \frac{500000}{14} }\right \rfloor\ \] Aditya Parson · 3 years, 7 months ago

Nah, I only gave the question as an example for the concept I wanted to know more about. Basically, I wanted to know how to frame an equation for the phrase "X is divisible by Y." Aditya Karekatte · 3 years, 7 months ago

Note that the numbers you are looking for are exactly the numbers that are divisible by \(14\), because \(14 = 2 \times 7\). Tim Vermeulen · 3 years, 7 months ago
