# 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.

Herein, 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 is the remainder of 3 divided by 2?

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.

## How do do long division?

Steps

• Set up the equation. On a piece of paper, write the dividend (number being divided) on the right, under the division symbol, and the divisor (number doing the division) to the left on the outside.
• Divide the first digit.
• Divide the first two digits.
• Enter the first digit of the quotient.
• ## What is an example of long division?

Sometimes there are numbers left over. These are called remainders. Taking an example similar to that on the Long Division page it becomes more clear: The first number of the dividend is divided by the divisor. The whole number result is placed at the top.

## What is the method of long division?

The long division method is used when you are dividing a large number (usually three digits or more) by a two-digit (or more) number. It is set out in a similar way to short division (the ‘bus stop’ method).

## How do you divide odd numbers?

Method 2 Breaking Up a Two-Digit Number

• Turn the number you are dividing into an even number +1. An odd number will always have a remainder of 1 when dividing by 2.
• Divide the even number by 2. You will likely be able to do this in your head, since it will divide evenly.
• Add 0.5 to the quotient.
• ## What is the sign for remainder?

Logarithm (log) In mathematics, the remainder is the amount “left over” after performing some computation. In arithmetic, the remainder is the integer “left over” after dividing one integer by another to produce an integer quotient (integer division).

## What is the remainder of division?

We can find the remainder of a division problem by using long division.

## How do you divide a decimal number by another decimal number?

To divide a decimal by another decimal:

• Move the decimal point in the divisor to the right until it is a whole number.
• Move the decimal point in the dividend to the right by the same number of places as the decimal point was moved to make the divisor a whole number.
• Then divide the new dividend by the new divisor.
• ## 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.

## How do you divide a number by a decimal?

Move the decimal point enough places to the right to make the divisor a whole number. You must move the decimal point in the dividend the same number of places to the right.

## How do you subtract decimals?

To subtract decimals, follow these steps:

• Write down the two numbers, one under the other, with the decimal points lined up.
• Add zeros so the numbers have the same length.
• Then subtract normally, remembering to put the decimal point in the answer.
• ## How can you subtract?

Method 4 Subtracting Fractions

• Line up the denominators and the numerators of the fractions.
• Find the lowest common denominator.
• Rewrite the fractions with the same denominators.
• Subtract the numerators of both fractions.
• Write the new numerator over the same denominator to get your final answer.
• Check your work.
• ## How do you add and subtract decimals?

• Write down the numbers, one under the other, with the decimal points lined up.
• Put in zeros so the numbers have the same length (see below for why that is OK)
• Then add using column addition, remembering to put the decimal point in the answer.
• ## How do you know where to place the decimal point?

To multiply decimals: Set up and multiply the numbers as you do with whole numbers. Count the total number of decimal places in both of the factors. Place the decimal point in the product so that the number of decimal places in the product is the sum of the decimal places in the factors.

## How do you put a decimal into a fraction?

Convert Decimals to Fractions

• Step 1: Write down the decimal divided by 1, like this: decimal 1.
• Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom by 10 for every number after the decimal point. (For example, if there are two numbers after the decimal point, then use 100, if there are three then use 1000, etc.)
• Step 3: Simplify (or reduce) the fraction.
• ## What is an example of a decimal fraction?

Decimal Fraction. more A fraction where the denominator (the bottom number) is a power of ten (such as 10, 100, 1000, etc). You can write decimal fractions with a decimal point (and no denominator), which make it easier to do calculations like addition and multiplication on fractions.

## How do you convert a percent to a fraction?

To convert a Percent to a Fraction follow these steps:

• Step 1: Write down the percent divided by 100 like this: percent 100.
• Step 2: If the percent is not a whole number, then multiply both top and bottom by 10 for every number after the decimal point.
• Step 3: Simplify (or reduce) the fraction.
• ## What is 65% as a fraction?

There is not much that can be done to figure out how to write .65 as a fraction, except to literally use what the decimal portion of your number, the .65, means. Since there are 2 digits in 65, the very last digit is the “100th” decimal place. So we can just say that .65 is the same as 65/100.

## How do you get a percentage from a fraction?

Steps: Divide the top of the fraction by the bottom, Then multiply the result by 100 and read off the answer !

## How do you find the remainder in division?

Step-by-Step

• Set up the division problem with the long division symbol or the long division bracket.
• Divide the first number of the dividend, 4 by the divisor, 32.
• Put the 0 on top of the division bracket.
• Draw a line under the 0 and subtract 0 from 4.
