The division is a process of repeated subtraction. Dividing Numbers means calculating the division of two numbers. The sign of division is ÷ or /. Students can know more about the division of two numbers, get the interesting facts about the division and divisibility rules in the following sections. Here, you can also check the solved example questions on dividing numbers.

## Division of Numbers – Definition

The division is one of the four basic arithmetic operations that split into equal groups or parts. It is the opposite of multiplication and it is a process of repeated subtraction. The method of division has exactly 4 parts they are dividend, divisor, quotient, and remainder.

### Rules for Dividing Numbers to Help with

The important math formula of division is dividend = (divisor x quotient) + remainder. In dividing numbers, we will learn to find division by 10, 20, 30, 100, 50, 200, 300 . . . . Get the divisibility rules and facts about the division in the following sections.

- In division problems, the remainder is always less than the divisor.
- If a division problem has 1 as the divisor, then the quotient and dividend are sane.
- If a division problem has 0 as the divisor, then the quotient will also be 0.
- The quotient and divisor are factors of the dividend when there is no remainder.

### How to Divide Step by Step?

The below mentioned are the simple steps that are helpful to calculate the division of two numbers.

- Remember the multiplication table of the divisor.
- If the first digit of the dividend is greater than the divisor, then divide it by the divisor. Otherwise, take the first two digits of the dividend for the division.
- Write the quotient above the dividend.
- Write the product of quotient and divisor under the dividend
- Subtract product from the dividend.
- Bring down the next digit of the dividend.
- Repeat the process until you left with zero digits on the right side.
- Check the quotient and multiply it with a divisor to get the dividend.

### Dividing Numbers Questions and Answers

**Question 1:**

Divide 100 ÷ 20 and find the quotient.

**Solution:**

Given that,

100 ÷ 20

100 ÷ 20 = 100 ÷ (2 x 10) = 100 ÷ 2 ÷ 10

We divide 100 by 2 and then the obtained quotient is divided by 10.

then

Or

So, quotient = 5

Therefore, 100 ÷ 20 = 5

Question 2:

Divide 240 by 30 and check the quotient.

Solution:

Given that,

240 ÷ 30

240 ÷ 30 = 240 ÷ (3 x 10) = 240 ÷ 3 ÷ 10

We divide 240 by 3 and then the obtained quotient is divided by 10.

then

So, the quotient is 8

Multiply 30 by 8

8 x 30 = 8 x 3 x 10

= 24 x 10 = 240

Therefore, 240 ÷ 30 = 8.

Question 3:

Divide 4500 ÷ 90.

Solution:

Given that,

4500 ÷ 90

4500 ÷ 90 = 4500 ÷ (9 x 10) = 4500 ÷ 9 ÷ 10

We divide 4500 by 9 and then the obtained quotient is divided by 10.

then

So, the quotient is 50

Therefore, 4500 ÷ 90 = 50.

Question 4:

Divide 2184 by 26 and find the quotient.

Solution:

Given that,

2184 ÷ 26

21 < 26, so take the first three digits of the dividend

218 is taken for the division

26 x 8 = 208

218 – 208 = 10

8 will be the quotient

104 is taken for division

26 x 4 = 104

104 – 104 = 0

4 will be the quotient

Therefore, the quotient is 84.

2184 ÷ 26 = 84.
