Answer:

It is #256#.

Explanation:

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

Answer:

#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# = #40xx6 +16# = #240+16# = #256#
