# Dividing Whole Numbers

Division of whole Numbers is related to equal distribution of the objects in any number of parts. If done for smaller whole numbers, we can do it with repeated subtraction method. In the case of larger numbers, we need to use the method of Long Division, for which we need to remember the tables of the whole numbers.

There are certain rules which if remembered will make the process of division easier or Dividing Whole Numbers easier.

1. Division of a number by 1: For dividing Whole Number by 1, we must remember that the result is always the dividend .
2. Division of a number by 0: whenever 0 is divided by any whole  number , the result is always 0.
3. Remember that when ever any even number is divided by 2 the remainder is always 0 and when any odd number is divided by 2 the remainder is always 1.
4. To verify the division , we must remember the formula: Dividend = Quotient x Divisor + Remainder. If the LHS = RHS, it means that the calculations done for the division are correct.
Whole number division can be explained by an example:

## Division Operations

Different mathematical operators are used to perform mathematical calculations on the Numbers. Operations of division is one of them. Division means equal distribution of any object in equal number of parts. We can do small division by the help of repeated subtraction.

Example:

To divide 8 by 2 by repeated subtraction method:
8 – 2 = 6 ---- ( 1)
6 – 2...Read More

## Properties of Division

Mathematical operators help us to solve the problems with Numbers and get the result. Division is one of the basic mathematical operators. Division is the reverse process of multiplication. Division means equal distribution of any object in any number of parts. The number which is divided is called dividend, the number of parts in which the number is to be divi...Read More

## Division with Remainders

In order to work with the Numbers, we need to learn about mathematical operators. The basic mathematical operators are addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Literal meaning of Division is equal distribution. Equal distribution of any object in equal number of parts can be done by repeated subtraction. Example:
To divide 8 by 3 by repeat...Read More

## Long Division

Division is a process which can be performed by repetitive subtraction method. But for larger number this method does not work. To solve bigger problems of division we use long division method to make it easy to calculate. Math long division is a system of stems broken in order to make the division process simple and easier. In this method an algorithm of steps are foll...Read More
