3 “goes into” 12 evenly

Hi, Does the above statement is meant to convey that the quotient is even ? or is it meant to convey that the remainder is 0? I am particularly concerned with the word "evenly". Thanks, in advance!

EVENLY means that the remainder is 0

I think the other way.
Evenly means that when we divide 12 by 3 we have an even quotient as 4 and remainder as zero.
For 15, I will say 3 goes into 15 oddly.

The above statement just means that 12 is divisible by 3,ergo zero remainder. It has got nothing to do with the quotient being even/odd.

Ex- 3 goes evenly into 15.

It just means that 15 can be divided into 5 equal(even) parts.

x divides k evenly, just means that x is a factor of k, divides k without leaving a remainder. For example, 3 divides 12 evenly --> 12/3=4.

Hope it helps.

"Evenly" has remainder of 0, and 12 can be evenly distributed into 3 groups. What consists of those groups (4) shouldn't derive if a number is "gone into" evenly or oddly. Basically, I'm not so sure on what was said about "oddly"; I've never seen that before.

I hope this helps.
