# Write the predecessor of 10000.  Answer Verified
Hint- Here, we will be using the definition of predecessor of a number.

As we know, the predecessor of a number is the number which comes exactly before that number.
Predecessors of any given number can be simply calculated by subtracting 1 from the given number. So, the predecessor of any number $a$ is given by $\left( {a - 1} \right)$.
So, the predecessor of 10000 is $\left( {10000 - 1} \right) = 9999$ i.e., the predecessor of 10000 is 9999.

Note- In these types of problems, we subtract one from the given number in order to find the predecessor of the given number.
