Students taking May SAT MAY want to try today's Twitter problem I just posted at twitter.com/dmarain

If n is a positive integer, then the expression n(n+3) + (n+3)(n+8) must be divisible by

I. 2

II. 4

III. 8

EXPLAIN!

This is a typical "cases" type but I omitted the usual choices like

(A) I only

etc...

Might be worth some discussion to consider more than the typical student's "plug-in" approach. That's why I added "EXPLAIN! "

There is some rich mathematics to be unearthed here IMO...
