We will start with an easy process of division, by taking small and simple numbers. We will be dividing 25 by 2.
In the above expression 25 is known as the dividend where as 2 is called the divisor.
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.
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.
Minus 5 from 4, now you will receive a remainder which is 1.
There is no other number left in the dividend with the help of which you can vanish the remainder.
Now from the division of dividend with the divisor the result is shown as 12 is the quotient and 1 is the remainder.
