# Division Formula

The Division Formula is one of the most basic formulas in Mathematics. It is taught to students at a very young age. These basic concepts make it easier for students to study more complex topics. It is necessary for students to get a good understanding of the Division Formula for them to have good Mathematical skills. The Division Formula will help students throughout their academic life and even after that.

## What Is Division Formula?

Division Formula is used to divide a whole number into equal parts. We use the symbols (÷) and (/) to indicate division. “p divided by q” can thus be written as (p÷q) or (p/q).

Division Formula is one of the four basic arithmetic operations. The Division Formula is used to divide a large number into many equal parts. Division Formula can be expressed as follows:

• Dividend ÷ Divisor = Quotient
• Dividend/Divisor = Quotient

Where,

• Dividend is the number to be divided.
• Divisor is the number that divides.
• Result is the quotient

If the number is not exactly divisible, remainder is left behind.

## Division Formula For Verification

Students can easily verify the Division Formula. This method of verification can be expressed as

Dividend = (Divisor × Quotient) + Remainder.

With the help of the above-mentioned formula, students can recheck their answers. This is one of the most important formulas in Mathematics.

## Examples on Division Formula

To understand the Division Formula better, students must solve a lot of practice questions.

Example 1: Divide 15 by 3

Solution:

15 ÷ 3 = 5

Example 2: Divide 37 by 9

Solution:

37 ÷ 9 = 4 and Remainder 1 as 37 is not exactly divisible by 4

Example 3: Verify Division for 37 divided by 9 if quotient is 4 and remainder is 1.

Solution:

Dividend = 37

Divisor = 9

Quotient = 4

Remainder = 1

According to Division verification formula

(Divisor × Quotient) + Remainder = 9 × 4 + 1 = 37 = Dividend

Hence, Division is verified.

### 1. What is the Division Formula?

The Division Formula can be expressed as Dividend/Divisor = Quotient.

### 2. What is the Formula for Verification of Division Formula?

The formula to verify Division Formula can be expressed as Dividend = (Divisor × Quotient) + Remainder.
