# how to solve ' find the least number that should be added to to 36516 so that the result is exectly  divisible by 456

Iam doing this problem inorder to explain it.

First of all divide 36516 with 456 and record the quotient and remainder. The quotient will be 80 and the remainder wil be 36.

Then multiply the quotient (80) thus got with 456 (i.e.456*80) and you will get an answer as 36480.

So if u add 456 to 36840 to u will get the next number divisible by 465.

But we have to find the number that hav to be added frm 36516.

So just subtract the remainder(36) frm 456 and add with 36516 and u will get the next number divisible by 456.

i.e. 456 - 36 = 420.

SO the least number that should be added to 36516 is 420.

Hope u understood the method and this helped u much.

Dear User of Mertination,
In order keep in mind the following steps-
1) Check the number comes after 36516 which is divisible by 456
Example.
Your same question in my order
Find the least number should added to 10 so that result will exactly divisible by 20.
Now, see the question carefully.
Now the solution for my example is
10+x= totally divisiblty by 20
So first you have to check in 20's table 10 will be added to 10 to make 20.
Now,
10+(x=10)=20
And 20 is divisible by 20 and also it is least number.

Dear User I know the answer of your question but I am not telling you the correct answers. I have explained you in detail now use your brain.

And dear user always keep in mind that Cheating can never give you success
So use your brain for any query kindly mail me on the mail you have to write your query and name first and in last type Gmail.(your name)12.mertination@web

Thank you student

We will do this question by this method -

like for example - i am using what is the least number that should be added to 15 to be exactly divisible by 6

so we will divide 15 from 6 , we will get the answer as -

-------------
6             )   15           )    2

- 12
-----------------------
3

----------------------------

now we got the answer of 3 , so it means that 3 is the least number that should be added to 15 to be exactly divisible by 6 .

and for check the answer you can add it and see if it is divisible or not
lets check our examples's answer -

3 = 15 = 18
now is 18 divisible by 6 , yes it is divisible by 6 .

= 6 * 3 = 18

so it means our answer is right .

now we can solve questions like this .

and now you can easily find out that how we solved this question.

36516?456=8 with a remainder of 36.
We just need to add the remainder to the divisor to make it divisible by 456.
