ExplanationDivision problems can be interpreted as follows: dividend = divisor × quotient + remainder.

This problem is dividing x by 7, or distributing x items equally to 7 groups. After the items are distributed among the 7 groups, there are 3 items left over, the remainder. This means that the value of x must be some number that is 3 larger than a multiple of 7, such as 3, 10, 17, 24, etc.

The only answer choice that is 3 larger than a multiple of 7 is 52.
