**Division** is one of the four basic operations of arithmetic, **division** of two natural numbers is the process of calculating the number of times one number is contained within another one. In **division**, the dividend is divided by the divisor to get a quotient.

In Division, there are some keywords one need to know in order to have a better understanding of the terminologies(terms) that are being used during the process.

**1) Quotient (Q):** The result obtained as the division of the dividend by the divisor is called as the quotient.

**2)** **Dividend/Numerator (N):** The number which gets divided by another integer is called as the dividend or numerator.

**1) Divisor/Denominator (D)**: The number which divides the dividend is called as the divisor or denominator.

**2) Remainder (R):** If the dividend is not divided completely by the divisor, then the number left at the end of the division is called as the remainder.

1) 836 people are watching a movie in a hall. If the hall has 44 rows, how many people can sit in 1 row?

**Answer: **

Number of people watching a movie = 836

Number of rows = 44

Number of people sitting in 1 row = 836 ÷ 44 = 19

2) A gardener bought 458 apples trees. He wants to plant 15 trees in each row. How many rows will be required to plant the apple trees?

**Answer:** No of trees bought = 458

No of trees planted in 1 row = 15

Therefore: No of rows required = 458 ÷ 15

We get 30 as the Quotient and 8 as the Remainder. Hence, he can plant in 30 rows and 8 trees are left over.
