At first I thought "rem" was "remainder but only division problems have remainders. Addition, subtraction, and multiplication of integers always give an integer: 25+ 4= 29 and there is nothing more to be said.

Division of integers does NOT necessarily give an integer so you could say $\displaystyle 29 \div 4= 6$ with remainder 1 because 4*6= 24.

Is it possible that you have mistaken $\displaystyle \div $ for +?
