## What is Meant by Remainder?

In Mathematics, the division process is the opposite of the multiplication process. The two main things which we need for division problems are dividend and divisor. The number which we want to divide up is known as the dividend, whereas the number which we use for dividing is known as the divisor. The result is called the quotient. The leftover number in the division process is called the remainder. For example, 11/2

Here, 11 is the dividend, 2 is the divisor.

When we divide, the quotient obtained is 5, and the remainder will be 1.
