## The correct option is B completes 615 paintings with 1 litre of paint remaining.Paint used for each painting = 15 litres. Total amount of paint used = 9226 litres. ∴ The number of paintings completed by the artist will be =9226÷15. Here, Dividend = 9226 and, Divisor = 15 Calculating 9226÷15 by box method, So, you get 615 as the final quotient and 1 as the remainder. ∴ With 9226 litres of paint, the artist completes 615 paintings with 1 litre of paint remaining.
