Yes, certainly. A quotient is the result of division ( a divisor into a dividend). The remainder can be bigger than the quotient, but not bigger than the divisor. For example 130 divided by 20 =6 with remainder of 10. Here 6 is the quotient and remainder is 10, which is bigger than the quotient

Because if the remainder is bigger than the divisor, the quotient can be increased and that will reduce the remainder. You can keep doing as long as the remainder is larger than the divisor. You stop only when it becomes smaller.

The remainder is less than the divisor because if the remainder was greater than the divisor, you have the wrong quotient. In other words, you should increase your quotient until your remainder is less than your divisor!

Then divide the remainder again by the divisor until you get a remainder smaller than your divisor or an remainder equal to zero. The remainder in a division question should never be larger than the "divisor", but the remainder often is larger than the "answer" (quotient). For example, if 435 is divided by 63, the quotient is 22 and the remainder is 57.

Dividend divided by divisor equals quotient

Multiply the quotient by the divisor to result in the dividend.If dividend/divisor=quotient, then dividend=quotient x divisor

quotient top: divisor bottom

If the divisor of the dividend is a fraction then the quotient is increased as for example 14 divided by 2 = 7 but 14 divided by 1/2 or 0.5 = 28

Dividend : Divisor = Quotient

The divisor is 9. quotient x divisor + remainder = dividend ⇒ quotient x divisor = dividend - remainder ⇒ divisor = (dividend - remainder) ÷ quotient = (53 - 8) ÷ 5 = 45 ÷ 5 = 9

Your quotient that you arrived at is too small. Increase the answer for the quotient, so that the remainder is from zero to (divisor minus one)

Because the dividend divided by the divisor produces a quotient.

A quotient is undefined if the divisor is zero.

If the remained was bigger than the divisor than the divisor could still be taken out of the remainder

you use multiply the divisor times the quotient & it should equal the dividend.

Dividend divided by divisor equals quotient.

the quotient would be wrong

divisor Dividend ÷ Divisor = Quotient

The divisor is divided into the dividend to produce a quotient

The dividend is the product of the divisor with the quotient.

yes

No. A divisor cannot be bigger than the number that it is meant to divide.

No it shouldn't because the divisor should always be bigger.

Dividend divided by divisor equals quotient.

Dividend if the number that you divide, divisor is the number that you divide dividend into, and quotient is the number that you get from dividing dividend into divisor. For example, in 12/3=4, 12 is the dividend, 3 is the divisor, and 4 is the quotient.
