Division is breaking a number up into an equal number of parts. Division is splitting into equal parts or groups. It is the result of “fair sharing”.
Signs for Division
There are a number of signs that people may use to indicate division. The most common one is ÷, but the backslash / is also used. Sometimes people will write one number on top of another with a line between them. This is also called a fraction.
Dividend, Divisor and Quotient
Each part of a division equation has a name. The three main names are the dividend, the divisor, and the quotient.
- Dividend – The dividend is the number you are dividing up
- Divisor – The divisor is the number you are dividing by
- Quotient – The quotient is the answer
Dividend ÷ Divisor = Quotient
