37 is the number.

Every 2 digit number, when divided by the number one less than it, will result in a remainder of 1.

14. The largest possible number for a remainder is 1 less than the divisor.

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

Yes- A remainder can be any number less than the dividend (the number by which the divisor is divided). An example of a 2 digit number is: 131/11=11 remainder 10.

23 / 7 = 3 R 2, 23 < 40, 23 / 4 = 5 R 3

989. If there is a remainder of 2 when divided by 3, the number is one less than a multiple of 3. If there is a remainder of 4 when divided by 5, the number is one less than a multiple of 5. Thus the number required is one less than a multiple of the lowest common multiple of 3 and 5 (that is 15). So what is needed is an even multiple of 15 less than or equal to 1000: 1000 ÷ 15 = 662/3 Thus the highest even multiple of 15 not greater than 1000 is 66 x 15 = 990, and the required number is 989.

Nothing. The remainder has to be less than the divisor.

I would think 100 is the answer.

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.

A remainder can be any non-negative number that is less than the divisor. If the remainder is bigger than the divisor, the divisor can go into it another one (or more) times until the remainder is brought into that range.

Any non-negative number less than 8. If the number being divided is not a whole number, the remainder will not be a whole number either.

No answer is possible as any number divided by 9 must either be exactly divisible by 9 or leave a remainder less than 9.

62, 94, 126, 158, 190...the list goes on and on

twenty-seven 27 - 3 = 24 = 6 x 4

The numbers that divide evenly by 7 and less than 75 are 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, 49, 56, 63, and 70 Of the above numbers 56 when divided by 11 gives a quotient of 5 and a remainder of 1 Hence the number is 56
