*  Division


Division: distribution of a quantity into some parts such that each of the parts contains equal amount is called division.

Dividend: The number which is divided. Divisor: The number by which other number is divided.                        

Quotient: Number of times by which the divisor is multiplied to get equal to dividend.  

Remainder: The number which is left after subtraction                         



Divide 4575 by 20 .
\[\begin{align}   & \underset{\text{Divisor}\,\leftarrow 20)4575(228\to \text{Quotient}}{\mathop{\overset{\text{Dividend}}{\mathop{\uparrow }}\,}}\, \\  & \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\frac{-40}{057} \\  & \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\frac{-40}{175} \\  & \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\frac{-160}{\underline{015}}\to \text{Remainder} \\ \end{align}\]

* How to Perform Division

Consider first digit of the dividend from left.

Condition 1:  When the first digit is greater than or equal to the divisor:

Step 1: Multiply the divisor by a number such that the product is closest to the number but not greater.                                 

Step 2: Write the multiplier in the quotient side and the product below the number and subtract.

Step 3: Bring down the second digit of the dividend and write it right to the difference.

Step 4: Now compare the formed number with the divisor. If the number is greater than divisor, follow the above steps. If the number is smaller than the divisor multiply the divisor by 0 and follow above steps. Continue the process till all the digits of the dividend is brought down.

Condition 2: When the first digit is smaller than the divisor, Step 1: Multiply the divisor by 0 and follow the above steps.                   

Note: If the number formed by first two digits of the dividend is also smaller than divisor, multiply the divisor by 0 and follow the above steps.  



* Word Problems Based on Division  


Arwin types 66 words in a minute, the average number of letter in a word is 6. If he types for 10 hours, how many times can he type the word "mathematics"?

(a) 21600 times                                

(b) 19200 times

(c) 15200 times                                 

(d) 25200 times

(e) None of these  


Answer: (a)  


Arwin types 66 words in a minute and the average number of letter in a word is 6 Therefore, total number of letters he types in a minute \[=66\times 6=396\] Thus, in 10 hours he can type \[=396\times 60\times 10\] letters = 237600 letters The word "mathematics" contains 11 letters. Therefore, total number of times he can type the word "mathematics" \[=\frac{237600}{11}=21600.\]  



There are 72575 mangoes. They are to be packed into boxes. If each box contains 25 mangoes, find the number of required boxes.

(a) 2225                                               

(b) 3000

(c) 2903                                               

(d) 7125

(e) None of these  


Answer: (c)  


Total number of mangoes = 72575

Number of mangoes in one box = 25

Therefore, total number of boxes \[=\frac{72575}{25}=2903\]    



  • Addition, subtraction and multiplication always starts from right and gees to left.
  • When we add 1 to n digit highest number we get n+1 digit smallest number (n is a natural number).
  • Product of two numbers is an add number.
  • Product of two even numbers is an even number.
  • Product of a add number and an even number is an even number.  



  • Addition is the sum numbers.
  • When any number is added by 6, the number does net get change.
  • Subtraction is the difference of two numbers.
  • When 8 is subtracted from a number, the number remains same.
  • Multiplication is the short cut method of repeated addition.
  • When a number is multiplied by B, the number gets 8.
  • When a number is multiplied by 1, the number does net get changed.
  • Division is the method ff distribution if a quantity into some equal parts.
  • When a number is divided by 1, the number does not get changed.  






Find the sum of A, B and C when A = 96545, B = 225, and C = 1002?

(a) 97770                                             

(b) 97772

(c) 77792                                             

(d) 47772

Answer: (b)  


A + B + C = 96545 + 225 + 1002 = 97772.  



In a school, number of boys is 645 more than that of girls. If there are 2563 girls in the school, find the total number of students in the school?  

(a) 5771                                             

(b) 3208

(c) 4568                                               

(d) 4786         

(e) None of these   


Answer: (a)  


Number of girls in the school = 2563

Number of boys in the school = 2563 + 645 = 3208                       

Total number of students in the school = 2563 + 3208 = 5771.

Subtract 5896 from the difference between 98456 and 2999

(a) 45897                                             

(b) 48796

(c) 89561                                             

(d) 48963
