    The highest remainder when dividing by two is one.

    Zero does not count as a remainder because it indicates exact division

    without any part left over. Zero as a remainder is no remainder.

    When dividing by 5 the greatest remainder you can have is 4

    When dividing by n the greatest remainder you can have is n - 1

    When dividing by 2 the greatest remainder you can have is 1

    It is also the lowest remainder because it is the only one.

    All odd numbers have remainder 1 when divided by 2.

    All even numbers are exactly divisible by 2 and so there is no remainder.

    A *reminder* is something that causes you to remember something. A *remainder* is a portion or amount that is left. You wanted to say *remainder*, not *reminder*.

    In general, when you are dividing by a positive integer N, the largest remainder you can have is N-1.

    If you end up with N (or higher) then you could still take out one more portion of N and reduce the remainder.

    The only remainders when dividing by 2 are 0 or 1, with 1 being the greatest possible remainder.

    Examples:

    4/2 = 2 r 0

    5/2 = 2 r 1

    6/2 = 3 r 0

    7/2 = 3 r 1

    You get a remainder of 1 when you start with an odd number. You get a remainder of 0 when dividing an even number.

    Answer:

    1 is the greatest possible remainder when dividing by 2.

    (2 is the greatest possible remainder when dividing by 3.)

    (3 is the greatest possible remainder when dividing by 4.)

    (N-1 is the greatest possible remainder when dividing by N.)

    You have a reminder when you get down to a number from which you can no long extract "2".  The only number(s) that is possible for are 1 and 0.  However if you have 0 you do not have a reminder.  So the ONLY reminder you could get when dividing by 2 is "1".  It would be both the highest and the lowest.

    When dividing by 2, the only two options for a remainder is 0 and 1.

    If you end up with a remainder of 2 that means you didn't divide properly and it should have a remainder of 0.

    So the highest remainder when dividing by 2 is 1.
