$2484\times \frac{36y}{36}$

Number which is divisible by 36 should be divisible by 9 and 4

To be divisible by 4, the value of y must be 0,4 or 8

$I\! f y=0, x= 0\: or \: 9 \Rightarrow x-y= 0 \: or\: 9$

$I\! \! f y=4 , x=5 \Rightarrow x-y=1$

$I\! \! f y=8 , x=1 \Rightarrow x-y=-7$

$\Rightarrow -7$
