Division is one of the 4 basic and most important operations in math. In the process of division of two numbers, one number gets divided by the other number. The answer or the result we get in the division process is known as the ‘Quotient’. So quotient is the number which is produced when a certain number is divided by another number. If the given number is being divided by its factor, then in that division the remainder produced will be ‘0’ and the answer is the quotient.

Example 1: What is the quotient when the number ‘48’ is divided by ‘4’?

Here ‘48’ is being divided by ‘4’, and this can also be written in the fraction form as: 48/4.

Here the number placed on the top (or in the numerator) is ‘48’, and the number placed in the bottom (or in

the denominator) is ‘4’.

Using the long division process, 48 is divided by 4 and the answer is 12.

Hence the quotient when 48 is divided by 4 is 12 -> 48/4 = 12.

Example 2: What is the quotient when the number ‘63’ is divided by ‘7’?

Here ‘63’ is being divided by ‘7’, and this can also be written in the fraction form as: 63/7.

Here the number placed on the top (or in the numerator) is ‘63’, and the number placed in the bottom (or in

the denominator) is ‘7’.

Using the long division process, 63 is divided by 7 and the answer is 9.

Hence the quotient when 63 is divided by 7 is 9 -> 63/7 = 9.
