The largest possible remainder when dividing by any number N is N-1.

The largest possible number for a remainder is 1 less than the number of the divisor, so it is 5.

5

2

The largest [integer] remainder is 10. If the remainder was any more you would get one (or more) lots of 11.

14, which is 15 minus 1.

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.

9

That's not possible. The largest single-digit number by which you might divide is 9. And, by definition, the remainder is always LESS than the number by which you divide. Thus, the largest remainder you can get, when you divide by 9, is 8.

The largest remainder would be 8, because if it were 9 you could divide the number once more. The largest remainder you can have is always one less than what you're dividing by. So if you're dividing by 10, your largest remainder is 9. If you're dividing by 100, it's 99. And so on.

If you mean as in a whole number then it is 7

99

It is 997.

It is not possible, because the number 4 is divisible by 2, and it's remainder is divisible by 2 also, so whatever number works for the "4 with a remainder of 2", will never work for "2 with a remainder of 1.

8 is the greatest possible whole number remainder, eg seventeen divided by nine...

23457 divided by 23456 leaves a remainder of 1, and it is divisible by 7. So that is one of infinitely many possible answers.

14

There is no such number. You can have arbitrarily large numbers with this property - therefore there is no largest.

If you divide by 8, the remainder can be any number from 0 to 7.
