# Division Calculator

Division can be considered as sharing or grouping a number into equal parts.

**for example:**$6 \div 2 = 3$

Here total 6 objects are divided into 2 groups, then how many objects will be there in each group?

We have to divide these 6 objects in two equal groups, so we will have two groups of three objects each.

We can also write it as $6 \div 2 = 3$ or

$\frac {6}{2} = 3 $

Generally the sign '$ \div $' is used for denoting division. It is also known as a process in which we will be doing repeated subtraction.

$6 \div 2$. Subtract 2 repeatedly from 6 so that you either get a zero or a number less than 2 at the end.

$6 - 2 $ = $4 - 2$ = $2 - 2$ = 0

Here 2 is subtracted three times from 6 to get zero. It means 3 two's go in a six.

The order of operation is very important in division .

$6 \div 2$ is not same as $2 \div 6$

**There are four terms that describe the four numbers involved in division.**

**Dividend:**the number being divided.

**Divisor:**the number which divides the dividend

**Quotient:**the number of times the divisor will go in the dividend. (the whole number obtained after division)

**Remainder:**The remaining amount left over which is less than the divisor or too small to be divided by the divisor to get a whole number. Sometimes after division an amount is left over ,it is called as remainder.

Division and multiplication are opposite of each other, We can cross check division by multiplication.

$12 \div 6 =2$

$2 \times 6 = 12$.

Numbers can not be divided by zero as it is impossible to make zero groups of given number.When any number is divided by 1 the answer is the number itself. If you divide a number in 1 group then everything is in that group . When a number divided itself the answer is 1. And if you divide zero with any number the answer will be zero itself.
