Hint: To solve the question, we have to arrive at understanding that the required answer is equal to the subtraction of the correct answer from the student answer.

The value of the answer the student calculated $=7236\times 65$
The value of the correct answer $=7236\times 56$
Thus, the student answer exceeds the correct answer by the value $=\left( 7236\times 65-7236\times 56 \right)$
$\therefore$ The student answer is greater than the correct answer by the value = 65,124
