Java Program for Largest K digit number divisible by X

Integers X and K are given. The task is to find highest K-digit number divisible by X.

Examples:

Input : X = 30, K = 3
Output : 990
990 is the largest three digit 
number divisible by 30.

Input : X = 7, K = 2
Output : 98

An efficient solution is to use below formula.

ans = MAX - (MAX % X)
where MAX is the largest K digit 
number which is  999...K-times

The formula works on simple school method division. We remove remainder to get the largest divisible number.
