# Division Rules: Learn Divisor, Dividend, Quotient and Remainder

Before we go ahead to learn how the division problems are solved, let’s learn about its components.

### What is Dividend?

The number we divide is known as Divided.

40 ÷ 8 = 5 —> 40 is the Dividend here.

### What is Divisor?

The number by which you have to divide another number is called Divisor

34 ÷ 2 = 17 —> 2 is the Divisor here.

### What is Quotient?

The Quotient is the answer to the Division. You can also call it the result.

21 ÷ 3 = 7 —> 7 is the Quotient here.

### What is Remainder?

The Remainder is the number that is leftover after the division (means you cannot divide further). The Remainder will always be less than the Divisor.

68 ÷ 13 = 5 Remainder-3 —> 5 is the Quotient and 3 is the Remainder.

Let’s have a look at the image below to understand quickly.

### Some Basic Rules You Should Know About Division

**Rule 1:**You cannot divide a number by 0.

**Example:** 643 ÷ 0 —-> It’s not possible. The math itself is wrong.

**Rule 2:**When Dividend is 0, the Quotient will always be 0. It doesn’t matter by which number it is divided.

**Examples:**

0 ÷ 45 = 0

0 ÷ 553 = 0

**Rule 3:**When Divisor is 1, the Quotient will always be equal to the Dividend.

**Examples:**

321 ÷ 1 = 321

43 ÷ 1 = 43

**Rule 4:**When Divisor and Dividend are equal, the Quotient will always be 1.

**Examples:**

67 ÷ 67 = 1

985 ÷ 985 = 1
