## How do you divide dividend and divisor?

When we divide two numbers, the number that is being divided is the dividend, whereas the number by which we divide is the divisor. For example, 12 candies are to be divided among 3 children. So we have 12 ÷ 3. Here, 12 is the dividend, and 3 is the divisor.

### How do you find the dividend division?

If the value of divisor, quotient, and remainder is given then we can find dividend divided by the following dividend formula: Dividend = Divisor x Quotient + Remainder. It is just the reverse process of division.

**What is the dividend in a division?**

In division, the amount or number to be divided is called the dividend. Dividend is the whole that is to be divided into parts. Here, for example, 12 candies are to be divided among 3 children. 12 is the dividend.

**How do you calculate dividends in long division?**

That is, multiplying the quotient by the divisor and adding in the remainder has to result in the dividend. Note that (x + 3)(x + 2) + 3 = x2 + 5x + 9, that is, quotient · divisor + remainder = dividend.

## Does the divisor go first?

Remember that the divisor goes outside of the division box. The dividend is the value that goes inside the division box. It is the number that you are actually dividing. We want to divide this decimal into two parts.

### What is the remainder when 599 is divided by 9?

5

What is the remainder when 599 is divided by 9? The remainder is 5. To calculate this, first, divide 599 by 9 to get the largest multiple of 9 before 599. 5/9 < 1, so carry the 5 to the tens, 59/9 = 6 r 5, so carry the 5 to the digits.

**What comes first divisor or dividend?**

The number that is being divided (in this case, 15) is called the dividend, and the number that it is being divided by (in this case, 3) is called the divisor. The result of the division is the quotient.

**How do you multiply the dividend by the reciprocal of the divisor?**

In mathematics, the general rule we use to divide a fraction is to multiply the dividend by the reciprocal of the divisor. That is, ab÷cd=ab×dc a b ÷ c d = a b × d c .
