Q .The difference of two number is 2524 on dividing the larg number by the smaller, we get 8 as quotient and 179 as remainder . the smaller number is ?

Let the smaller number is x so the second number will be x + 2524

As we now the formula -

Dividend = Divisor * Quotient + remainder

x + 2524 = x * 8 + 179

2524 - 179 = 8x - x

2345 = 7x

2345 / 7 = x

335 = x

So the smaller number is 335
