There are several parts to a division problem. It is easy to see them with this example.

16 divided by 3 is 5 with a remainder of 1. The number 16 is the dividend and 3 is the divisor.

The 5 is the quotient and the 1 is the remainder.

To see that the answer of a division problem such as this is correct, just multiply.

The divisor multiplied by the quotient plus the remainder is the dividend. So

3x5+1=16 as desired.

Of course sometimes you have a problem like 8 divided by 2=4. In this case 8 is the dividend and 2 is the divisor. The number 4 is the quotient. The difference here is there is no remainder.
