Consider the equation: $(7526)_8 − (Y)_8 = (4364)_8$, where $(X)_N$ stands for $X$ to the base $N$. Find $Y$.

1. $1634$
2. $1737$
3. $3142$
4. $3162$

C.
The given numbers are in octal representation. Digits range from $0$ to $7$.
$Y=7526-4364$

$\;\;\;7526$
$-4364$
_______
$\;3142$

steps : 1. $(6-4) =2$
2. $(2-6)$ , borrow a $8$. Now $(8+2-6)=4$
3. $(5-1-3) = 1$        (Subtracted by 1 because ONE $8$ was borrowed)
4.$(7-4) = 3$

use calci.. calsi is allowed :D (10 second time question)
Not anymore :P

hahaha....right :)

Calci does not build the concept that's by I solve the question properly.

3142 in Octal is the Answer. Option C.
