A number showing how many times a sum of money belonging to one person is contained in the pocket of another -- usually about as many times as it can be got there.

The number resulting from the division of one number by another, and showing how often a less number is contained in a greater; thus, the quotient of twelve divided by four is three.

(2) The result after dividing one number by another number; the number of equal shares. In the division number model "11 ÷ 5 = 2 r1," 2 is the quotient.

The result of one number divided by another.

A number resulting from division.

the ratio of two quantities to be divided

the number obtained by division

The result of the division of two quantities or expressions. The letter used to represent the set of real numbers.

The number that results when numbers are divided.

A quotient is the quantity resulting from the division of one quantity by another. (See also division and ratio.) Examples: , , These may be reduced to 3, , (We may regard 2 as quotient, 1 as remainder.)

When performing division, the number of times one value can be multiplied to reach the other value represents the quotient. For example, when dividing 7 by 3, 3 can be multiplied twice, making 6, and the remainder is 1, so the quotient is 2

The answer after dividing one number by another.

In the Sainte-Laguë ¦ormula used in MMP elections, the total number of party votes received by each party is divided by successive odd numbers. The resulting values are called quotients. See also: details of using the Sainte-Laguë ¦ormula Back to the Top

The answer to a division problem.

The number that results from a division problem, not including the remainder. In the problem, 61÷4, the quotient is 25.

In mathematics, a quotient is the end result of a division problem. For example, in the problem 6 Ã· 3, the quotient would be 2, while 6 would be called the dividend, and 3 the divisor. The quotient can also be expressed as the number of times the divisor divides into the dividend.
