What do you get as the result, and the remainder, if you divide eleven thousand eleven hundred and eleven by three?

Some Thoughts Completely different (Tricks type) solution | Comment 20 of 21 |
Since the puzzle title is "Division by three", I choose to divide the problem into three different problems.
I am essentially assuming commas where none are present, of course, this is a stretch.
But I think it is no more stretch than earlier solvers who assumed the word "and" meant to insert a decimal point.

11,000 / 3 = 3,666 remainder 2
1,100  / 3 = 366 remainder 2
11 / 3 = 3 remainder 2
