Solution to

If the divisor does not go into the dividend evenly, an amount is left over.

Frame 1-6

The quantity left is called the remainder. For example, when the number

19 is divided by 6, the quotient is 3 with a remainder of 1. (There are

6 - divisor

three groups of sixes and another group consisting of the one.) The

18 - dividend

remainder is usually expressed as a fraction (remainder over divisor).

Solution to

The answer to the problem 19 6 can be written as 3r1 (three with a

Frame 1-7

remainder of 1) or as 3 1/6 (three and one-sixth). The second method

442 - dividend

(whole number and a fraction) is the preferred method of stating the

15 - divisor

answer. Another way of expressing the answer (especially if you are

29 - quotient

using a calculator) is as a decimal (see Frame 1-24).

nine and seven-fifteenths.)

Set up and work this addition problem: 3 + 212 + 21 = ?
