In division by 5, you can have remainders of 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4. If you count zero, then you can have five possible remainders. If you are not counting zero, then 4 possible remainders.

There are 8 possible remainders - including 0.

If the dividend is a multiple of 8 then there will be no remainders in the quotient otherwise the possible remainders are limitless

It will probably depend on the dividend (the number to be divided)

20 possible remainders.

The possible number of remainders is always one less than the divisor.

13: 0 to 12, inclusive.

Anything less than 8.

In division by three, possible nonzero remainders are 1 and 2.

There are 13 possible remainders: the numbers from 0 to 12 (inclusive).

The possible number of remainders is always one less than the divisor.

With the divisor (the number you are dividing by) as 9, there are 9 possible remainders: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.

8 integer remainders. From 0 to 7 (inclusive).

There are 11 possible remainders (1 to 11). If something is divisible by 12, there is said to be no remainder, but this can be considered to be a remainder of 0, making 12 possible remainders.

The possible remainders are {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7} making eight of them.

If the dividend is a positive integer (a whole number) then the possible remainders are 0 (zero) when the dividend is an even number and 1 when the dividend is an odd number.

There are 9 possible remainders: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

For numbers 0-23 , the remainder will range from 23-0 . After 23 , the same range of remainders will repeat. Hence , when 23 is the divisor , there are 24 possible remainders , 0-23.

Only 3 non-zero remainders.1, 2, and 3 are the only possible non-zero remainders since any number greater than or equal to the divisor could also be divided, to result in a new quotient. A remainder of zero, means that the dividend is divisible by the divisor (the divisor is a factor of the number)

There are 10 possible divisors, the numbers 0 to 9.

There are 8 possible remainders; they are: 0 (or no remainder), 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7.

The question is asking how many integers go into 36 with no remainders.2,3,4,6,9,12,36

The remainder can be anything from zero to 20 ... 21 possibilities.

It'll help if you do it on your own. divide 1,000,000 by 60 (how many seconds in a minute) and you have how many minutes are in a million seconds. Set aside the remainder and that's how many second's you'll end up with. Divide the number you got by 60 again (how many minutes in an hour) and again set aside the remainder. Divide that number by 24 (how many hours in a day) and that will give you how many days. you have that many days, all those remainders are now however many hours, minutes and seconds are left over. There's your answer :) The solution is the same for 1,000,000,000
