# Answer

If the divisor is 40, what is the least three-digit dividend that would give a remainder of 4.

=> 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 answer

=> 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
