"12 remainder 3" is the result of a division. We would need to know the numbers involved in the division before we could answer this. There are many ways this number could arise - 87 / 7 = 12 remainder three, which would be 12.42857 - 207 / 17 = 12 remainder three, which would be 12.17647 If you mean 12 and one-third then the answer is 12.3333 (the 3 recurs endlessly).
