Dividing into **smaller components** Division is used to divide large groupings into smaller portions. The number obtained by dividing **one integer** by another is known as a quotient. Remainder: the number that remains after division that is less than the divisor. For example, if I divide 12 by 2 and get 6, then the remainder is 6. There are many ways to divide numbers together with different results. Here are some examples: 1/2 = 0, 3/4 = 0, 7/8 = 0, 15/16 = 0.

Division answers can be either integral or decimal. Integral division answers are written as whole numbers. Decimal division answers include fractions. For example, here are two ways to divide 12 into four parts: 1/4 = 0, 7/12 = 0.083.

Sometimes, it's useful to express a division as a fraction. For example, if I were to ask you to divide 12 by 4, you would say that there is a fractional part (also called a decimal) and a whole number part (called the quotient). Fractions allow us to write down results in **general terms** without having to worry about whether the result is an integer or not. They are very important in science and mathematics because many problems can only be solved using fractions.

Quotient The divisor indicates how many groups the payout must be divided into. The answer, or outcome of the division, is the quotient. It indicates how many things will be in each category. For example, if you divide 7 items into 4 categories without counting zero as a category then you would say that the quotient is 2. This means that each category will contain either two or three items. If you count zero then it is possible to have zero items in one category and another category with three items. In this case, the quotient would be 3/1 or 3.

Division Divison is the opposite of multiplication. With division, you take two numbers and try to get them to equal **a third number** by dividing one by the other. For example, if you were to divide 20 by 5 then your answer would be 3. You can think of division as splitting up something into three parts, or divisions. So, division is basically saying that there are three ways that I can split up **this thing** called "20" into **smaller pieces**.

Because division is breaking down numbers into fractions or parts, most people find it difficult to do. That's why most schools don't teach division until later in life when people are more comfortable doing it.

Division is a process of dividing anything into equal parts. It is one of **the four basic arithmetic operations** that produces a reasonable result. The division's main purpose is to determine how many equal groups there are or how many people are in **each group** when sharing equitably. For example, if you give someone 10 minutes of your time, you should get back 10 minutes of their time. Or perhaps you want to divide up some pizza: Each person gets a slice.

In mathematics, division is the act of dividing a number by another number and obtaining a fraction as a result. This can be done with real numbers (including integers) or with complex numbers. In either case, division is often represented by a slash through the numbers being divided. That is, "3/4" would be written as 3/4. In this context, 3/4 is known as a fraction because it is a part of something else - in this case, it is a part of the number 6. Fractions are used in many areas of math and science, including economics, accounting, and physics.

Finally, division can also refer to the act of splitting up money so that everyone gets what they deserve. For example, if you give someone $10 then they should still have $10 after you pay for things. If you split up $100 then no one wins or loses money but each person gets **exactly what** they need or want.
