# Division Formula

Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and** Division** are the four basic operations of Arithmetic. The division is a method of splitting a number into equal parts. Learn about the division formula as we scroll down. We shall also solve a few examples to understand the division formula at the end.

Few symbols that we use to indicate division are **(÷) and (/).**

Thus, “p divided by q” can be written as given below:

\((p÷q), (\frac{p}{q}), (p/q)\)

## What Is Division Formula?

**Division Formula** of a given value can be expressed as,

**Dividend / Divisor = Quotient**

**OR**

**Dividend / Divisor = Quotient**

Where,

The dividend is the number that is to be divided

The divisor is the number to be divided with

The quotient is the result.

Let's look into a quick example of **Division Formula**

**Example: **Divide 10 by 5.

**Solution: **Using **Division Formula**,

Division = \(\dfrac{10}{5}\)

= **2**

**Division of 10 by 5 is 2.**

## Solved Examples Using Division Formula

### Example 1: Divide the value of 5000 by 50. What will be the quotient?

**Solution:**

To find: The quotient

Dividend = 5000.

Divisor = 50.

Using Division Formula,

Dividend / Divisor = Quotient

(5000 / 50) = 100

= 100

**Answer: After the division the quotient will be 100.**

### Example 2: 20 chocolates were distributed equally among 4 children. How many chocolates were given to each child?

**Solution: **

To find: Number of chocolates were given to each child.

Given information are:

Total chocolets = 20.

Total children = 4.

Using **Division Formula**,

Chocolates given to each child = (Total chocolates / Total Children)

= (20/4)

= **5**

**Answer: 5 chocolates were given to each child.**
