When a number is divided by 32 what is the greatest value the remainder may have

The remainder is the number that is left over after the initial value has been divided as much as it can. If any numbers greater than 48 were present as a remainder, then these could be divided further into 48. If 48 is present as the remainder, then this can be divided by 48 to give 1, leaving no remainder. Thus, the largest possible remainder if the divisor is 48 is 47.

The 4 has the greatest value. It is in the 100 billionths place.

The smallest number that satisfies the problem is 1718366. There is no greatest number; whatever value you specify as the greatest I can add 967 × 2053 = 1985251 and get an even greater number that solves the problem. This addition is divisible by both 2053 and 967, so when dividing by 2053 or 967 the (respective) remainder does not change.

The greatest whole number is 5, but you could get a value higher than 5 but less that 6 if there are decimal places involved. So you could have a remainder of 5.999999999999999999 for example.

The quotient is the number of times the second number goes intro the first and the remainder is what is left over.

If the remainder must be an integer value, then the largest remainder you can have from any equation when dividing by 12 is a remainder of 11. Example: (23 / 12 = 1 R11) 12 goes into 23 one time, and there's 11 left over. If there was more than 11, such as (24 / 12), then the answer would be 2 with no remainder.

The digit with the second greatest value in the number is '1'. its value is second to the largest number which is 2.

There is no such number.
