• Isn't there a way to make the remainder a fraction?
• Yes, the numerator will be the remainder, and the denominator will be the divisor.
Example:
13/4 = 3 with a remainder of 1, so the answer will be 3 1/4
• When do we use remainders in real life?
• I use it when dividing packages of candy canes and chocolates into goody bags for my piano students. I don't want anyone to get less than another. My husband eats the remainders. :)
• do you like leftovers those leftovers are remainders
• Is long division the easiest way to finding remainders. Or is there another way?
• It's the easiest with large numbers, for smaller ones, say 10 divided by 3, that's pretty easy to do counting out or however you'd wanna do it.
• how are u like givng it the regrouping part
• By "regrouping part" do you mean the remainders? Or do you mean regrouping in the subtraction part?
For the remainders, whatever is left after the subtracting is the remainder.
For regrouping in the subtraction part, you just need to be very careful with how you write it. Make the 1 that you small and try to put it below the first subtraction line to keep things tidy.
• how to divide double digit and double digit and get a remainder.
• At I think he should have done a division problem of hard numbers for the example.
• yes but in this the video is easy but the questions are hard
