Remainder? Can u give examples with remainders?

I dont think I have seen one with a remainder unless it was an estimator, in which case you would just round appropriately. Remainders with 1/6 are almost all repeating decimals so you couldnt write them as a decimal.

I am a bit confused on how to solve a problem like this:

3.6* 16 2/3 =

I understand how to do the steps, but I do not understand if you add zeroes or move the decimal places in the final answer.

Honestly the easiest way is common sense. 3*16 is around 48 just use common sense after that.
