What Do We Call the Number We Are Divide Into?

Question: What do we call the number we are divided into?

We will see the parts of a division problem.

Answer: The numbers In the division are called Dividend, Divisor, Quotient and Remainder.

We will answer the question by taking one example.


Consider the division 8 ÷ 5

Division of 8 by 5

Therefore, the number being divided (8 here) is called as Dividend, the number which is dividing (5 here) is called as Divisor, the number which is obtained as the answer (3 here) is the Quotient and the number that is left without further division (3 at the bottom) is Remainder.
