• Essentially, what he is saying is that he is trying to split 8 into 3 different groups. So, he gets the biggest amount he can get into each group with 3 groups, but there still are a few left.
• It’s confusing a teeny bit. Btw, HOW DO U WRITE SOOOO GOOD ON A COMPUTER, SAL!!
• Oh, yeah, your first question. So, I'm just going to make an example 45 divided by 4, so 4 by 10 is 40, and 4 by 11 is 44, and 4 by 12 is 48, but you can't make 45, can't you? So, you can say, "So yeah this is 4 by 11 with a remainder with 1." I hoped this helped!
• what can we do with the remander
