# Answer

Find the least 3 digit dividend that would give a remainder of 4, in where the divisor is 40

=> x + 4 / 40.

Since the quotient is not given, it doesn’t matter what the quotient is as long as we have a remainder of 4 when we divide it with 40.

=> Let’s try multiplying 40 first to find a 3 digit number

=> 40 x 2 = 80, not the anser

=> 40 x 3 = 120, this is a 3 digit number and the least 3 digit number

Thus the equation and the answer would be

=> 120 + 4 / 40

=> 124 / 40

=> 3 remainder of 4

**the least 3 digit number: 124**
