The answer is $16$ or $- 2$. Both are the same thing.

#### Explanation:

You have to use Euclid's Division lemma.
It states that Dividend $=$ Divisor $\times$ Quotient $+$ Remainder.
Where Remainder $<$ Divisor.

Apply this and your question. You will get

124 $=$ 18$\times$ 6 + 16
OR
124 $=$ 18$\times$7 $-$ 2

So remainder is $16$ or $- 2$.
