What does the remainder in a quotient represent? Explain. Are they any sites you would recommend to get help or practice this topic? If so, what are they?

The reminder in a quotient represents the leftover numbers when you have a problem like 15/2. you would have to find the closest number that is a multiple of 2 then subtract it from 15.the answer would be 7R1 because 7*2 =14 14+1=15.

A remainder in a quotient represents something. The remainder represents how many more you have to count or go to get to the number you are dividing. For example, if you were dividing 20\6 the answer would be 3 remainder 2.This is because you can count to six 3 times so thats where the three came from.I got the number 2 because you need 2 more to get to the number 20. So as you can see remainders are very important when you are dividing numbers.

The remainder in quotient mean how many are left but you can't divide evenly you can also use the traditional way to find your answer to.

The quotient remainder represents what is left over. Say that your question is 37/3.=12 R1. 3x12=36 and there is one left. 3736=1. You would need to find the closest multiplication problem that is multiplying 3 and it is less than 2 under 37.
