Correspondingly, why is there a remainder in division?

In arithmetic, the

**remainder**is the integer "left over" after dividing one integer by another to produce an integer quotient (integer**division**). Formally it is also true that a**remainder**is what is left after subtracting one number from another, although this is more precisely called the difference.What do you do with the remainder in a division problem?

A

**remainder**in mathematics is what's left over in a**division problem**. In the**division**process, the number we want to divide up is known as the dividend, while the number we are dividing by is referred to as the divisor; the result is the quotient. We can find the**remainder**of a**division problem**by using long**division**.How do you find the remainder on a calculator?

Work the

**division**in your**calculator**as normal. Once you have the answer in decimal form, subtract the whole number, then multiply the decimal value that's left by the divisor of your original problem. The result is your**remainder**. For example, divide 346 by 7 to arrive at 49.428571.
