If you add, subtract or multiply whole numbers, you always end up with a whole number. But division is different. One whole number may not â€˜go intoâ€™ another exactly. There may be something left over.

For example if you have 6 biscuits to divide between 4 people, each person can have one biscuit each and 2 are left over. In division, the 2 left over are called the remainder. This is expressed as:

• 6 Ã· 4 = 1, remainder 2

Given the amino acid sequence of a protein, it is possible to use computational methods to try to fit the sequence into folding patterns. This operation is called â€˜threadingâ€™. Different conformations can be ranked according to how well they accommodate the sequence; that is, the most stable conformation is ranked highest. Of course, this technique can only be used for those folds that have been definitively described by X-ray diffraction or NMR, and the structure of those proteins whose s

Section 32 of the Scotland Act provides that a Bill, once passed, must be submitted for Royal Assent. This is done after a period of four weeks. During that time, the Bill may be subject to legal challenge by the Advocate General for Scotland, the Lord Advocate or the Attorney General, and may also be subject to an order made by the Secretary of State. The Presiding Officer may, however, submit the Bill for Royal Assent after less than four weeks if notified by all three Law Officers and the

In comparison with the mechanism of overruling, which is rarely used, the main device for avoiding binding precedent is that of distinguishing. As has been previously stated, the ratio decidendi of any case is based upon the material facts of the case. This opens up the possibility that a court may regard the facts of the case before it as significantly different from the facts of a cited precedent, so it will not find itself bound to follow that precedent. Judges use the device of dis

Many people are fascinated by maps, and most find them useful, though not in all situations. A lone driver, without a map-reading navigator, will find it difficult to use a map. New in-car navigation systems are designed to help such a driver, or one who is without map-reading skills but is able to follow directions.

The remainder of this subsection uses maps to introduce some important terms and concepts. It also examines a navigation system, used both in cars and in hand-held devices,

You might think that learning from audio-visual sources is very different from learning from written sources yet, somewhat surprisingly, it is much the same. This section of the unit will help you to think about how you can turn the very familiar, but usually passive, process of watching a video into the active process of learning. Watching the video will involve the skills of engaging with the material and making sense of it for yourself, just as if it were written materials. The advantage o

With the help of two archaeologists she discovers that the iconography reveals important clues about the villa inhabitants' world view, taste, and aspirations.
