r can be 1,2,3
R can be 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
let k be the integer to be divided by 4 and 9.

when r = 3,
k can be 3,7,11,15,19,23,27,31,35

when k = 35, R = 8

So, max r^2 + R = 9 + 8 = 17

divided by 4, the remainder is r--------> means -------> r<4
when divided by 9, the remainder is R ---means ------> R<9
Max possible values = 3*3 + 8=17
