To check if a number is divisible by 3 (that is has no remainder when divided by 3), add the digits of the number together and if the sum is divisible by 3, so is the original number.

This check can be repeated on the sum and so if the summing is repeated until a single digit remains, then if this digits is 3, 6 or 9 then the original number is divisible by 3.

48 → 4 + 8 = 12

12 → 1 + 2 = 3

3 is 3, 6 or 9 so 48 is divisible by 3, that is there is no remainder when 48 is divided by 3.

The remainder is the number that is left over after the initial value has been divided as much as it can. If any numbers greater than 48 were present as a remainder, then these could be divided further into 48. If 48 is present as the remainder, then this can be divided by 48 to give 1, leaving no remainder. Thus, the largest possible remainder if the divisor is 48 is 47.
