Division

Division is an mathematical operation that divides a number into portions. The ÷ symbol is called an obelus.

For example, 6 divided by 2 is 3, because when six is divided into two portions, each part has three.

Any number divided by one is equal to the original number. You cannot divide any number by zero. Division is the inverse of multiplication.


If you have 4 fish and want to divide them equally into 2 tanks, you will have 2 tanks in each tank.

Long Division:
In long division, the dividend is divided by the divisor, resulting in a quotient plus a remainder.
