 Description  
 Remainder:  The number left over when a number cannot be divided "evenly".

For example:

If you divide 11 by 5, the result is 2 with a remainder of 1, because 11 = 5 x 2 plus an extra 1.

If you divide 24 by 5, the result is 4 with a remainder of 4, because 24 = 5 x 4 plus an extra 4.
