A special integer exists in mathematics that shows a special property. If you subtract any number from that integer, the result will always be divisible by the successor of that number completely.

Do you know what that integer is ?

The required integer is -1.

For an example, let us subtract 7 from -1.

-1 - 7 = -8

Now the successor of 7 is 8 and (-8) is exactly divisible by 8.

You can try that for any number and it will hold true.
