# How to do division

Dear Student
The division is a method of distributing a group of things into equal parts. It is one of the four basic operations of arithmetic, which gives a fair result of sharing.
The division is an inverse operation of multiplication. If 3 groups of 4 make 12 in multiplication; 12 divided into 3 equal groups give 4 in each group in division.
The main goal of the division is to see how many equal groups or how many in each group when sharing fairly.

Mathematical notation for division
There are various signs which can be used to indicate division such as ÷, /.
For example:
8 ÷ 2
8/2
Dividend/divisor=Quotient
Dividend : The dividend is the number that is being divided in the division process.
Divisor:The number by which dividend is being divided by is called divisor.
Quotient: A quotient is a result obtained in the division process.
The remainder is the portion of the dividend that is left over after division. For example, on dividing 83 by 2, there is a leftover of 1.
