First divide your total apples by how many apples per box.

587/72 = 8.152777778

Then drop the numbers after the decimal, that leaves you with 8 boxes.

Now do the same thing, but use the mod key instead of divide.

587 Mod 72 = 11

There you have 8 boxes, with 11 left over.

If your calculator does not have a Mod key, then do it by hand.  Take the total boxes, times the number of apples per box, and subtract that from your total apples.

8 * 72 = 576
587 - 576 = 11

I may not have explained it very well, but thats how you go about it.
