dividend over the divisor

“a divided by b”, “a by b” or “a over b”.

dividend is divided by the divisor to get a quotient.

Example:

20 ÷ 5 = 4

20 is the** dividend**,

5 is the** divisor**,

4 is the** quotient**.

In some cases, the divisor may not be contained fully by the dividend

Example, 10 ÷ 3 leaves a remainder of one

1 is the **remainder**
