The remainder can be defined for all real numbers $x$ and $y$ with $y \neq 0$ by $$\text{rem} (x ,y)=x-y\left \lfloor \frac{x}{y} \right \rfloor$$where $\left \lfloor \tfrac{x}{y} \right \rfloor$ denotes the greatest integer less than or equal to $\tfrac{x}{y}$. What is the value of $\text{rem} (\tfrac{3}{8}, -\tfrac{2}{5} )$?
