# A number divided by 40 has a quotient of 6 with a remainder of 16. What is the number?

It is $256$.

#### Explanation:

You just have to get the divisor $\left(40\right)$ and multiply by the quotient $\left(6\right)$, then add the remainder $\left(16\right)$.

So we have: $\left(40.6\right) + 16 = 256$

$256$

#### Explanation:

Suppose, the number is $x$

When it (means $x$) is divided by $40$, the quotient is $6$ and remainder is $16$.

Quotient of $6$ tells that $40$ can go in that number $x$, $6$ times and then it has $16$ as remainder.

So, the number $x$ = $40 \times 6 + 16$ = $240 + 16$ = $256$
