Hint: In order to find the successor of the given values, first we should know what successor is. Successor is a whole number that comes just after the given number. So, to find the successor just add one to every number and it becomes the successor of that previous number. For example: If we are given with $x$ , then adding one to the value, we get $x + 1$ which is the required successor of $x$ .Similarly, adding one to any number, we get our successor.

Complete step by step solution:
We are given four values (a) $2440701$ (b) $100199$ (c) $1099999$ (d) $2345670$ , whose successor to be found out, so we would go one by one.
For, (a) $2440701$
The successor is the whole number just after this number, so to get that we are adding $1$ to $2440701$ , and we get:
$2440701 + 1 = 2440702$ , which is the successor of $2440701$ .

Similarly, finding successor for others by adding one, we get:
(b) $100199$
Adding one to $100199$ :
Successor obtained for $100199$ is $100199 + 1 = 100200$ .

(c) $1099999$
Adding one to $1099999$
Successor obtained for $1099999$ is $1099999 + 1 = 1100000$

(d) $2345670$
Adding one to $2345670$
Successor obtained for $2345670$ is $2345670 + 1 = 2345671$ .

Therefore, the successor of the given numbers are:
(a) $2440701 = 2440702$
(b) $100199 = 100200$
(c) $1099999 = 1100000$
(d) $2345670 = 2345671$

Note: If we are given a negative number, then its successor decreases, because, if we add one number to a negative number it will not move towards left in the number line, it always moves towards right and decrements a number to become positive.
If we were given to find a predecessor then one would be decremented or subtracted, as because the predecessor is a whole number just before the given number.
