Dividend of a Division Problem

Introduction to Dividend of division problem :-

      In mathematics, especially in elementary arithmetic, division (÷) is the arithmetic operation that is the inverse of multiplication.

Specifically, if c time’s b equals a, written:

      c x b = a

Where b is not zero, then a divided by b equals c, written:

      `a/b` = c.

In the above expression, a is called the dividend. (Source: Wikipedia)

In following steps for how to dividend and division of 20 by 2 problem

Step 1:-

       -------
    2 | 20

   In the above equation 2 is divisor and 20 is dividend. In the divisor has two decimal numbers put the value dividend of  20.

Step 2:-

          10
          -------
      2 |  20
           20
         ---------
            0
         --------

    Normally divide the values one by one the right value has 0 means directly divided by two digits. In 2 x 10 = 20 the divisor number 2 is multiplied with 10 to get an answer 20.In 20 is equal to 20. So use the values then subtracts the value and get remainder is 0.

423 divided by 13

Solution:

In following steps for how to divide and division of 423 by 13 problem

Step 1:-

      -------
 13| 423

    In the above equation 13 is divisor and 423 is dividend. In the divisor has two decimal numbers put the value dividend of 42.

Step 2:-

          3
        -------
   13| 423
        39
       ---------
          33

     In 13 x 3 = 39 the divisor number 13 is multiplied with 3 to get an answer 39. In 39 is less than from 42.So use the value then subtract the value and get 33.

Step 3:-

          32
         -------
    13| 423
         39
        ---------
           33
           26
        ----------
             7

      In 13 x 2 = 26 the divisor number 13 is multiplied with 2 to get an answer 26. In 26 is less than from 33.So use the value then subtract the value and get 7.

Step 4:-

          32.5
          ---------
      13| 423
           39
          ---------
             33
             26
          ----------
               70
               65
          ----------
                 5

      The value 7 has no more value in the right side. So put 0 to get 70 and put decimal point on the quotient. Then normal dividing 13 x 5 = 65 the divisor number 13 is multiplied with 5 to get an answer 65. In 65 is less than from 70.So use the value then subtract the value we get 5.

Step 5:-

             32.53
            -----------
       13| 423
            39
            ---------
              33
              26
             ----------
                70
                65
              ----------
                  50
                  39
               ----------

                  11 (continued)

        Repeat the step again put zero we get 50 have no more value in the right side. Then normal dividing 13 x 3 = 39 the divisor number 13 is multiplied with 3 to get an answer 39. In 39 is less than from 50.So use the value then subtract the value again we get 11. Finally we get an answer 32.53
