when an app fails to install, is the download file still there?

I have unsuccessfully tried to install a specific app three different times. The last time it failed to install, I got a notification that my phone memory was getting full. That made me wonder, is the download file for the app that failed to install(s) still on my phone taking up space? And if so, how do I get rid of it?
