What are Remainders from Division? Division problems often end in remainders. But what are remainders? This question is often asked by students in early academic stages. Let's try understanding that from an example. Suppose that you are entertaining a group of 14 people among whom you need to distribute 50 muffins. Without even trying to do math, you can easily predict that there are no way 50 muffins can be divided among 50 people equally. When distributing all the muffins, you will realise that when every member has received 3 muffins in their plates, there are 8 muffins left extra. That extra or leftover, is called the remainder. In this entire problem, 50 was the dividend or the figure that needed to be divided up. The divisor is the number we are dividing by which is 14. Quotient is how many times the divisor fits into the dividend which here is 3. Lastly, the remainder is the left over or the extra i.e. 8. This selection of worksheets and lessons introduces students to division with leftover remainders.

Homework Sheets

Tell us the outcome and what is left over.

  • Homework 1 - 2 can only go 3 times evenly into 7. That leaves us with 1.
  • Homework 2 - How many times does 5 go into 9 evenly?
  • Homework 3 - How many times does 5 go into 37 evenly? 7 times (7 x 5 = 35), but .., we are left with 2.

Practice Worksheets

Be very careful here! They are only looking for the remainder, nothing more.

  • Practice 1 - Write the letter of the answer that matches the problem.
  • Practice 2 - The amount which left over after division is known as remainder.
  • Practice 3 - Complete all the problems. State just the remainder of each problem.
  • Quick Lesson - When writing the answer to a quotient with a remainder, we write it as: (Amount that can evenly be divided) ("remainder") (amount left over)
