The "quotient" is the solution to a division problem. For example: in the problem

147/7 = 21 147 is the dividend (or numerator,) 7 is the divisor (or denominator,) and 21 is the quotient. If there is anything left over after the division, that would be called the remainder.

Note that the terms numerator and denominator are usually used in the context of fractions whereas dividend and divisor are used in the context of division. However, those contexts are equivalent, since fractions are really an expression of a division problem.
