    We will start with an easy process of division, by taking small and simple numbers. We will be dividing 25 by 2.

  • 2

    In the above expression 25 is known as the dividend where as 2 is called the divisor.

  • 3

    As you know 2 x 1 = 2 so there is no remainder left behind, because when you minus 2 from 2 the answer is zero and 1 is the quotient.

  • 4

    Now come to the next number of the dividend which is 5. Start remembering the table of 2 and see whether 5 come in 2’s table or there is any number which is smaller than and near the digit 5, yes there is 2 x 2 = 4.

  • 5

    Minus 5 from 4, now you will receive a remainder which is 1.

  • 6

    There is no other number left in the dividend with the help of which you can vanish the remainder.

  • 7

    Now from the division of dividend with the divisor the result is shown as 12 is the quotient and 1 is the remainder.
