# Explain How to Use Multiplication to Check the Answer to a Division Problem?

We can use a formula to verify the division problem

## Answer: (Quotient × Divisor) + Remainder = Dividend can be used to check the answer to a division problem.

Let us understand this concept with an example.

## Explanation

Let us consider the division 9 ÷ 4

Here the dividend is 8 and the divisor is 4 the quotient is 2 and the remainder is 1.

Now multiply 4 with 2 and add 3

i.e., 4 × 2 + 1 = 8 + 1 = 9

Hence, when we multiply the quotient with the divisor and add the remainder we get the dividend back. This way we can verify the division problem using multiplication.

**Thus, (Quotient × Divisor) + remainder = Dividend can be used to check the answer to a division problem.**
