Answer:

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 #xx# Quotient #+# Remainder.
Where Remainder #<# Divisor.

Apply this and your question. You will get

124 #=# 18#xx# 6 + 16
OR
124 #=# 18#xx#7 #-# 2

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