Dividend = Divisor*Quotient + Remainder.

Dividend = Q
Divisor = W
Quotient = R
Remainder = E

Q = W*R + E
Then E = Q-W*R

C is the answer

D. QW - R

Dividend=Quotient*Divisor+remainder
So, Q=R*W+E
Or, E=Q-RW

Ans. (C)

Translating the question we got the following :

$$\frac{Q}{W} = R + E$$

Q = RW + E

E = Q - RW.

The best answer is C.
