In mathematics, the remainder is the amount left over when one number is divided by another. When you divide one number by another, the remainder is the whole number left over after the division is complete.

To find the remainder when dividing one number by another, you can use the following formula:

Dividend = Divisor * Quotient + Remainder

Where: - Dividend is the number being divided - Divisor is the number you are dividing by - Quotient is the result of the division - Remainder is the amount left over

Let's say we want to find the remainder when 17 is divided by 5.

We can use the formula: 17 = 5 * 3 + 2

So, the remainder is 2.

Here are some key points to remember about remainders:

- When dividing one number by another, the remainder is the amount left over after the division is complete.
- The remainder can be found using the formula: Dividend = Divisor * Quotient + Remainder
- Remainders are often expressed as whole numbers less than the divisor.

Practice solving division problems to become more familiar with finding remainders.

Now that you understand the concept of remainders, you can practice solving problems involving division and finding the remainders. Good luck!
