Probable values for \(m = 2,8,14,20,26............\)
Probable values for \(n = 3,9,15,21,27.............\)

Probable values for \(m+n = 11, 17, 35,...\) in every case when these numbers are divided by \(6\)the remainder is \(5\)
when chosing number for \(m-n\) we should make sure that this is a \(+\)ve number since \(m>n\)
Probable values for \(m-n = 5, 11, 17,...\) in every case the remainder when divided by \(6 = 5\)
