Quotient is the result of a divisor dividing a dividend. For example 3 divide by 2 is 0.666...

3 is the divisor, 2 is a dividend and 0 is the quotient, as for the recurring 6's they are the remainder.

What does the answer tell you when the estimated quotent is 120 and the actual is 83?

It suggests that the divisor was very small and was rounded without sufficient care. It is likely that the denominator, such as 1.44 was rounded down to 1.

How many times does 41 go into 24?

Restating your question, you have 24 divided by 41. Or: 24/41, or 24 ÷ 41 = ?. Now to solve, looking at 41 and 24, you can see that 41 is larger than the number 24, therefore, you will be into fractions of 1. Solving: 41 doesn't go into 24, therefore, place a decimal, and add a zero to 24 making it 240. how many times does 41 divide into 240? decide on a number, I'm gonna' go for 6 at first. 6 x 41 = 246 too high! but only by a bit, so I'm gonna' guess that it would be 5 times. 5 x 41 = 205. Doing the subtraction, (240 - 205) you get 35. Now, bring down another zero, so that you have 350 divided by 41. Now I know from previous calculation that 41 x 6 =246, and I need a number a bit higher to subtract from 350. I'm gonna' try 9. Multiply 41 x 9 = 369, oops! a bit too high, so let's try 41 x 8, which equals 328--great, it's less that 350. Now, subtract 328 from 350 and your answer is 22, bring down a '0' to have 220. Now, how many times will 41 go into 220? I know that 5 x 41 = 205, so, I put 5 in the quotent and subtract 205 from 220 and get 15. Generally, when doing longhand division, you answer to about 3 places and then make a "remainder of:" statement. Therefore, we have 24 ÷ 41 = 0.585 remainder of 15. Or, if you are using a calculator, input: 24 division sign 41 equals. The answer would be: 0.5853658 (and so on). Generally, you would have been told previously how many decimal places to carry, and then it would be up to you to know if you add one to your last digit or not.
