WHAT DOES REMAINDER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Remainder

In mathematics, the remainder is the amount "left over" after performing some computation. In arithmetic, the remainder is the integer "left over" after dividing one integer by another to produce an integer quotient. In algebra, the remainder is the polynomial "left over" after dividing one polynomial by another. The modulo operation is the operation that produces such a remainder when given a dividend and divisor. Formally it is also true that a remainder is what is left after subtracting one number from another, although this is more properly called the difference. This usage can be found in some elementary textbooks; colloquially it is replaced by the expression "the rest" as in "Give me two dollars back and keep the rest." However, the term "remainder" is still used in this sense when a function is approximated by a series expansion and the error expression is referred to as the remainder term.

Definition of remainder in the English dictionary

The first definition of remainder in the dictionary is a part or portion that is left, as after use, subtraction, expenditure, the passage of time, etc. Other definition of remainder is the amount left over when one quantity cannot be exactly divided by another. Remainder is also a future interest in property; an interest in a particular estate that will pass to one at some future date, as on the death of the current possessor.
