So the key part to this lesson is you need the remainder of two numbers to equal 2 not just two numbers divided by each other to equal 2. If you were just dividing two numbers to equal 2 you could use 14 % 7 or 4 % 2 or etc. However, we want a remainder of 2. So now you just need to find 2 numbers that when divided by each other come up with a remainder of 2.
