The way to solve these kinds of questions is:
Divide 1,000,000 by 43 and find the remainder.
Then subtract the remainder from 43, and add the result to 1,000,000

1,000,000 = 43 x 23,255 + 35
43 - 35 = 8
Adding 8 to 1,000,000 gives 1,000,008

You may also notice that:
1,000,008 = 43 x 23,256

Let's consider 1000000

We can find out that 1000000 = 43 * 23255 + 35

43 * 23255 = 999965
999965 + 43 = 1000008

Thus, B

Thanks,

Could anyone guide me to calculate this 1000000 = 43 * 23255 + 35 faster?
