Best Answer

the biggest remainder you can have when dividing by 2 is 1.

Reason is ......if you divide an even number by 2 you will always get a round answer. However if you divide an odd number by 2 you will always get a full number with 1 reamining...i.e divide 3 by 2.........2 remainder 1......................divide 19 by 2 this will give you 9 remainder 1.

Hope this helps
