**What is Quotient? **

Quotient means the answer you get when dividing one number by another or any divisor. In other terms, it is the number of times the divisor is in the dividend. In addition to that, a quotient can either be an integer or a decimal number. For instance, 20 ÷ 5 = 4, here, a whole number is the quotient. On the other hand, 9 ÷2= 4.5 here a decimal is the quotient. A quotient tends to be larger than the divisor; however, it is smaller than the dividend. Let’s explore and understand multiple ways to find the quotient.

**How to verify the quotient of a number? **

You need to identify the divisor and dividend of a number when working with division operation. Besides that, you can get the quotient of a given number when you divided the dividend by the divisor. The problem should be in the following form:

**Dividend ÷Divisor =Quotient **

Lastly, if the dividend is divided perfectly by divisor, the remainder is zero. On the contrary, the dividend is not divided perfectly by divisor, there will be a remainder.

**Examples **

**40 ****¸ 3 = 13.3333 **

**72 ****¸ 2 = 32 **

**45 ****¸ 5 = 9**

**57 ****¸ 9 = 6.3333**

**Frequently Asked Question **

**1. What is the difference between a Remainder and a quotient? **

As mentioned above, a quotient is a number that you get when dividing a number by another. On the other hand, a remainder is a number left after division. It is also referred to as the remaining part after the division process. For example, suppose we need to distribute 9 balls to 2kids. We give 4 balls to each kid and remain with 1, and the number 1 is the remainder. For precise division, a quotient is always a whole number with zero as the remainder.

**2. Is the quotient a whole number?**

No, a quotient can either be a whole number or a decimal number.

**3. How can you verify the quotient in division**?

Here is a formula to verify:

**4. Dividend = (Divisor × Quotient) + Remainder**

It means, if you multiple the divisor with quotient then add the remainder, the answer should be dividend.

**5. What is the quotient formula? **

The quotient formula is:

**Dividend ÷ Divisor = Quotient **(suppose the remainder is zero?

General formula for division problem is:

**Dividend ÷ Divisor = Quotient +Remainder.**

**6. What are parts of Division Problem**?

Division operation involves:

Dividend ÷ Divisor = Quotient + Remainder.

**Dividend:** is the number required to be divided.

**Divisor:** is the number that divides the given dividend.

**Remainder:** is the remaining number after the division process.
