# Stock vs. Remainder

By Jaxson

## Main Difference

The main difference between Stock and Remainder is that the Stock is a financial instrument and Remainder is a the amount left over after dividing one integer by another.

• Stock

The stock (also capital stock) of a corporation is constituted of the equity stock of its owners. A single share of the stock represents fractional ownership of the corporation in proportion to the total number of shares. In liquidation, the stock represents the residual assets of the company that would be due to stockholders after discharge of all senior claims such as secured and unsecured debt. Stockholders’ equity cannot be withdrawn from the company in a way that is intended to be detrimental to the company’s creditors.

• Remainder

In mathematics, the remainder is the amount “left over” after performing some computation. In arithmetic, the remainder is the integer “left over” after dividing one integer by another to produce an integer quotient (integer division). In algebra, the remainder is the polynomial “left over” after dividing one polynomial by another. The modulo operation is the operation that produces such a remainder when given a dividend and divisor.

Formally it is also true that a remainder is what is left after subtracting one number from another, although this is more precisely called the difference. This usage can be found in some elementary textbooks; colloquially it is replaced by the expression “the rest” as in “Give me two dollars back and keep the rest.” However, the term “remainder” is still used in this sense when a function is approximated by a series expansion and the error expression (“the rest”) is referred to as the remainder term.
