DIVISION OF WHOLE NUMBERS

HELLO, WELCOME BACK TO CLASS

 

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
