In this case, it is not possible to divide the apples equally among 4 people without leaving any remainder.

How do you divide 16 apples equally among 17 children?

Since 16 and 17 are relatively prime, i.e. they share no divisors other than 1, the only ways to divide 16 apples equally amongst 17 children is to either cut each apple into 17 pieces and give 16 pieces to each child, or cut a 17th of an apple out of each apple, give the cut apples to 16 of the children and give the 16 pieces to the 17th child.Another way to do it is to make apple sauce.
