Multiples of 16 Solved Examples

Example 1: Ron visits his grandparents living in the countryside every 16^{th} day. If he visited them on the 1^{st} of July, on which date of the next month will he visit them again?
Solution:
Ron visited his grandparents on the 1^{st} of July.
Visiting every 16^{th} day means, the days that follow the pattern of multiples of 16
The date of his next visit will be after 16 days, i.e., 1 + 16 = 17^{th} of July, which is in the same month.
The date of his following visit will be again after 16 days, 17 + 16 = 33
Since July has 31 days, ( 33  31 = 2), his next visit will be on the 2^{nd} of August.
Therefore, he will visit them on the 2^{nd} of August. 
Example 2: Can you help Amy find the largest fourdigit multiple of 16?
Solution:
The largest fourdigit number = 9999
Multiple of 16 is a number divisible by 16
On dividing 9999 by 16
The quotient we will get is 624
The remainder we will get is 15
The largest fourdigit multiple of 16 = 9999  Remainder = 9999  15 = 9984
Hence, the largest fourdigit multiple of 16 = 9984
