4/8=0.5 The factors of a whole number are whole numbers by which the given number can be divided without any remainder. No whole number larger than 4 can be divided into 4, so 8, being larger than 4, cannot be a factor of 4.
The only thing which is clear is that the product will be a rational number.It can be a whole number or a mixed number;It can be larger than, equal to or smaller than the mixed number;It can be larger than or smaller than the whole number.
The largest possible number for a remainder is 1 less than the number of the divisor, so it is 5.
I think that a remainder can be larger than a divisor, but I'm not completely sure.
Yes, if it is a whole number but not if it is a fraction
23. There are many others. Any number larger than 7 that is not directly divisible by 7 will have a remainder, for example, 8 / 7 = 1 remainder 1, 9 / 7 = 1 remainder 2. But 14, 21, 28 etc, which are all directly divisible by 7, all have whole numbers as an answer (no remainders).
The result could be a whole number or a fraction. But whatever it is, it's smaller than the original whole number.
Then divide the remainder again by the divisor until you get a remainder smaller than your divisor or an remainder equal to zero. The remainder in a division question should never be larger than the "divisor", but the remainder often is larger than the "answer" (quotient). For example, if 435 is divided by 63, the quotient is 22 and the remainder is 57.
It is W - 1. If the remainder is greater than or equal to W, then you can subtract W from the remainder and increase the quotient by 1.
