The divisor is 9. quotient x divisor + remainder = dividend ⇒ quotient x divisor = dividend - remainder ⇒ divisor = (dividend - remainder) ÷ quotient = (53 - 8) ÷ 5 = 45 ÷ 5 = 9
To find the mixed number you need to first divide to find the quotient and remainder. So 71 over 8 has a quotient of 8 and remainder 7. So the general way of writing a mixed number is dividend over divisor = quotient (remainder over divisor) dividend/divisor = quotient remainder/divisor) So 71 over 8 = 8 7/8.
5. The remainder will never be more than the divisor.
If you divide by 8, the remainder can be any number from 0 to 7.
9. The divisor must be greater than the remainder. A 1 digit divisor that is greater than 8 can only be 9.
The greatest integer remainder is 7 but otherwise, 7.999... .
The dividend is 35 because 35/4 = 8 with a remainder of 3
The remainder is less than the divisor because if the remainder was greater than the divisor, you have the wrong quotient. In other words, you should increase your quotient until your remainder is less than your divisor!
