When a number is divided by its factor, the remainder will be ______.


Answer:

0(zero)

Step by Step Explanation:
  1. Remember: When a number divides another number exactly, then the divisor is called a factor of the dividend.

    For example: 2 and 3 are the factors of 6, because  

    6
    3
      = 2 and  
    6
    2
      = 3
  2. Let us look at the division process.

    Dividend↴
    Divisor→ 3)6(2 ←Quotient
    6
    Remainder←0

    Dividend↴
    Divisor→ 2)6(3 ←Quotient
    6
    Remainder←0

    We see that the remainder is 0 in both the cases.

  3. Thus, when a number is divided by its factor, the remainder is 0(zero).
