Division is one of the four basic Arithmetic Operations. It is the opposite of Multiplication. It is indicated by using the sign
and represents the process of calculating the how many times one quantity called the divisor is contained within another one called the dividend. The result is called the quotient.
If the result is not an integer, the quotient is the number of times the divisor is contained in the dividend, and the part of the dividend that remains is called the remainder.
Division is not commutative. This means that the order in which the operation is performed matters as it leads to different results.
