When you divide a number by another number, let's say 26/4, you can't always get a perfect number. In this case, 6*4 is 24, and you have 2 "remainder", or 2 left over. The quotient is the whole answer, in this case 6 remainder 2. So the remainder is part of the quotient, but not the whole quotient itself.

What is the divisor when the dividend is 53 and the quotient is 5 with a remainder of 8?

The divisor is 9. quotient x divisor + remainder = dividend ⇒ quotient x divisor = dividend - remainder ⇒ divisor = (dividend - remainder) ÷ quotient = (53 - 8) ÷ 5 = 45 ÷ 5 = 9

Is there a such thing as a remainder being bigger than the quotient?

Yes, certainly. A quotient is the result of division ( a divisor into a dividend). The remainder can be bigger than the quotient, but not bigger than the divisor. For example 130 divided by 20 =6 with remainder of 10. Here 6 is the quotient and remainder is 10, which is bigger than the quotient
