**25. Find the greatest number which divides 615 and 963, leaving the remainder 6 in each case**

** Solution**

Since the remainder is 6 we have to find the number which exactly divides (615 -6) and (963 -6)

Required number = HCF of 609 and 957

Hence, 87 is the greatest number which divides 615 and 963 leaving the remainder 6
