Remember to place a zero in the quotient when the divisor is larger than the dividend. Place the decimal point in your quotient. Check your answer: Multiply the divisor by the quotient to see if you get the dividend.

## What happens when the dividend is smaller than the divisor?

Whenever the dividend is less than the divisor, the quotient is always zero which results in the modulus simply being equal to the dividend. As long as they’re both positive, the remainder will be equal to the dividend. A modulus will always be positive, but a remainder can be negative.

## Can a quotient be larger than a dividend?

When a whole number is divided by a unit fraction, the quotient is a whole number greater than the dividend.

## Is the answer to a division problem greater than the dividend?

Dividing by 1 gives a quotient equal to the dividend. When the divisor is less than 1, the quotient is larger than the dividend. Decreasing the divisor to 1/2 increases the quotient to 10 1/2 . When the divisor is smaller than the dividend, the quotient is more than 1.

## How do you divide dividend and divisor?

The number that is being divided (in this case, 15) is called the dividend, and the number that it is being divided by (in this case, 3) is called the divisor. The result of the division is the quotient. Notice how you can always switch the divisor and quotient and still have a true equation: 15 ÷ 3 = 5.

## Is it true dividend is always greater than the divisor?

The large group is called the dividend. The number of smaller equal groups is called the divisor and the number of objects in each smaller group is called the quotient. Remainder is always less than the divisor.

## Is the divisor the biggest number?

The largest divisor of a number is the largest number that can divide it. It should not be the number itself. For example, for number 10, it can be divided by 1,2,5 and 10. So, the largest divisor is 5.

## What happens to the quotient when the divisor is really big?

The greater the divisor, the smaller the quotient, and vice versa.

## Is the sum always greater than Addends?

Coming back to the question, yes, the sum of two whole numbers is always greater than either number because even if one of the numbers to be added is 0, the answer will, well, not be greater, but at least equal to it.

## What happens to a quotient when a number is divided by number greater than 1?

Take some positive number greater than 1 (the dividend) and divide it by a positive number less than 1 (the divisor). It would be more accurate and clearer to say that when dividing a number which is greater than zero by a number between 0 and 1, then the quotient is greater than the dividend.

## What is the formula of dividend?

If the value of divisor, quotient, and remainder is given then we can find dividend divided by the following dividend formula: Dividend = Divisor x Quotient + Remainder.

## What is the quotient and remainder for 52 divided by 8?

Using a calculator, if you typed in 52 divided by 8, you’d get 6.5. You could also express 52/8 as a mixed fraction: 6 4/8. If you look at the mixed fraction 6 4/8, you’ll see that the numerator is the same as the remainder (4), the denominator is our original divisor (8), and the whole number is our final answer (6).

## When a number is divided by itself the quotient is?

What is the quotient when you divide a number by itself? Dividing any number (except 0) by itself produces a quotient of 1. Also, any number divided by 1 produces a quotient of the number. These two ideas are stated in the Division Properties of One.

## What is the result obtained by dividing a dividend by a divisor?

Divisor- the number which divides the dividend is called Divisor. Quotient- the number obtained as a result of division is called Quotient.

## When a number is divided by 121 what is the remainder is 25?

Since 121 is a multiple of 11 (11 x 11), we can assume that when x is divided by 11, it will also yield a reminder of 25. However, 25 can further be divided by 11 to yield a remainder of 3 (11 x 2). For instance, lets take the example of x = 146. x / 121 = 1, with a reminder of 25.

## How do you find the quotient in division?

The quotient in the division can be found by the formula, Dividend ÷ Divisor = Quotient. Let us understand this by a simple example of 12÷ 4 = 3. Here 12 is the dividend, 4 is the divisor, and 3 is the quotient.

## Can the remainder be greater than the divisor?

Properties of Remainder: The remainder is always less than the divisor. If the remainder is greater than the divisor, it means that the division is incomplete. It can be greater than or lesser than the quotient. For example; when 41 is divided by 7, the quotient is 5 and the remainder is 6.

## What will be the remainder when 74 is divided by 4?

You could also express 74/4 as a mixed fraction: 18 2/4. If you look at the mixed fraction 18 2/4, you’ll see that the numerator is the same as the remainder (2), the denominator is our original divisor (4), and the whole number is our final answer (18).

## Is the smaller number the divisor?

When the divisor is a smaller number than the dividend, then the answer is not a whole number but a decimal number.

## Does 1 count as a divisor?

1 and −1 divide (are divisors of) every integer. Every integer (and its negation) is a divisor of itself. A non-zero integer with at least one non-trivial divisor is known as a composite number, while the units −1 and 1 and prime numbers have no non-trivial divisors.

## Is 18 a divisor of 6 and why?

No, 18 is not a divisor of 6. By definition, a divisor of a number x is a number y that is a factor of x, which means that y divides into x evenly.

## Which number has 2 and 3 as a factor?

Calculator Use For example, you get 2 and 3 as a factor pair of 6.

## Which way do you move the decimal point when multiplying by 10?

Move the decimal point two places to the right to find the product. To multiply a decimal number by a power of ten (such as 10, 100, 1,000, etc.), count the number of zeros in the power of ten. Then move the decimal point that number of places to the right.

## Why would multiplying both the dividend and the divisor by 10 make a problem easier to solve?

When students figure which power of 10 to use, they must also multiply by the same power of 10 to the dividend. We can rewrite the division problem so that the divisor is a whole number and the quotient remains the same. This makes it easier to use the long division algorithm and yield the same answer.

## What will happen to the new quotient if the divisor is halved and the dividend is doubled?

If we double the divisor, the quotient will be half. In other words: The quotient will not change if we multiply the dividend and divisor by the same number, or if we divide them by the same number.
