Option B)

\(\frac{a}{b}\) = 35.24 = 35 +0.24 = 35 + \(\frac{24}{100}\)
:Remainder would come from \(\frac{24}{100}\) = \(\frac{6}{25}\)
:Remainder\((\frac{a}{b})\) = 6

We are given that a divided by b equals 35.24. Let’s express this using the remainder formula:

a/b = 35 + 24/100 (That is, if b = 100, then the remainder of a/b is 24.)

a/b = 35 + 12/50 (That is, if b = 50, then the remainder of a/b is 12.)

a/b = 35 + 6/25 (That is, if b = 25, then the remainder of a/b is 6.)

We see that the remainder of a/b is a multiple of 6, and thus the answer must be B.

We can sort it as follows:

\(\frac{a}{b} = 35 +\frac{24}{100}\)

Or \(\frac{24}{100} = \frac{6}{25}\)

\(\frac{6 (remainder)}{25 (divisor)}\)

a/b=35.24=35 24/100 or 35 6/26. we see that 6 is remainder, which is the answer
