# What is the greatest possible remainder for a divisor of 28 and a dividend of any number?

The greatest possible remainder is divisor is just less than 28. If the dividend is an integer, then it is 27. But if the dividend is any real number, the greatest possible remainder is 27.999.... (recurring).

Strictly speaking, though, the decimal can only be "nearly recurring". This is because 27.999 recurring = 28 and the remainder cannot be 28.
