#### What is a remainder?

The amount left over when you divide two numbers.

For instance, let's examine $$ 11 \div 2 $$.

When you divide 11 by 2, you end up with 1 'left over' as shown in the worked out long division below:

Find the remainder for each problem below.

As you can see in the picture below, the remainder is 3.

As you can see in the picture below, the remainder is 1.

As you can see in the picture below, the remainder is 0.

When a number (like *5* up above) evenly divides the other (*10* above), then there is no remainder.

As you can see in the picture below, the remainder is one.
