About division
The result of division is called the quotient.
Division is the inverse of multiplication.
a divided by b is equal with c or a over b is equal with c is written: a : b = c or a/b = c or , where a is called the dividend, b is called the divisor and c is called the quotient.
Example:
8 divided by 2 is equal with 4 can be written: 8 : 2 = 4 or 8/2 = 4 or .

If the dividend has the same sign as the divisor, the quotient is a positive number.
Example:

If the dividend has a different sign than the divisor, the quotient is a negative number.
Example:
Division properties

Division is Distributive with respect to addition
Example:
or we can calculate in a different way to verify the result:

Identity element for division is 1. Any number divided by has the result that number:
Example:

Division inverse is the number itself. Any number divided to itself has as result :
Example:

Zero Number.
* Zero divided by any number has as result zero:
Example:
* Any number divided by zero is undefined:
Example:

The result of a division stays the same if we multiply or divide the dividend and divisor with the same number.
in this case the divident and the divisor were multiplied with
Example:
in this case the dividend and the divisor were multiplied with
or can be written in this case the dividend and the divisor were divided by
