What Is Division?

Division: Division is one of the four arithmetic operations. The process of distributing a group of things into equal parts is called division.

Dividend: The number that is to be divided is called Dividend.

DivisorThe number by which the dividend is divided is called the Divisor.

QuotientThe results obtained in the division process is called the Quotient.

The symbol used for division is “`÷`”.

Division As Opposite of Multiplication

Example :

There are 12 balls and 3 boxes. Arrange 12 balls equally in the 3 boxes.

We know that 3 × 4 = 12. So, if 12 balls are divided into three boxes, then each box will contain 4 balls. 12 `÷` 3 = 4.

Division Using Grid Method:

Example :

Divide 96 by 4.

Write 96 on the grid and 4 outside the box.

Long Method of Division for 2-digit Numbers

Example :

Divide 39 by 3.

Fun facts:

• If a number is divided by itself then the quotient is 1.
• If a number is divided by 1 then the quotient is the number itself.

Common Mistakes:

Students generally neglect the place holder of 0.

Example :

404 `÷` 2

The correct way is

Therefore, 404 `÷` 2 = 202
