Actually, they have asked largest 5 digit number which is devisable by 91, if we add the difference of deviser and quotient that is 10 then it will definitely divide by 91 but it is a six-digit number.

So, if substract 99999 by 81 then the value is 99918 which is the largest 5 digit number divisible by 91.

Largest 5 digit number always 99999.
Easy to remind 9x9=81.
So 99999-81=99918.

Why not the remainder was subtracted from quotient and then added to the number?

99999 itself is divisible by 91? Then why 99999 is not that number?

If 10 is added it becomes 6 dig number 99999.
