i don't know what the problem is so um here are some examples i guessMULTIPLICATION5xX=20In this problem X=45x4=20SUBTRACTION80-X=43In this problem X=3780-37=43ADDITION5+X=98In this problem X=935+93=98Sorry i cant do the division example but i don't have a division signhope this will help youNinjainon123 out

"Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, and Addition and Subtraction." Therefore multiplication and division are equal.

Multiplication and division.

The identity property of division simply states that any number divided by one is equal to the original number. Mathematically: x/1 = x

The number being divided is the dividend, which is being divided by the divisor to equal the quotient. (dividend) Ã· (divisor) = (quotient)

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

Try 99/1

524 divided by 2 = 262

Because the remainder from a division must be smaller than the divisor. The remainder, 8, is not smaller than the divisor, 6.

No.

int dividend,divisor,remainder; int division(int p,int q){ int quotient=1; /*if divisor and diviend are equal then quotient=1*/ if(p==q){ remainder=0; return 1; } /*if dividend is smaller than divisor then remainder=dividend*/ if(p<q){ remainder=p; return 0; } /*shift left till divisor > dividend*/ while(p>=q){ q<<=1; quotient<<=1; } /*shift right for one time so that divisor become smaller than dividend*/ q>>=1; quotient>>=1; /*again call division recurcively*/ quotient+=division(p-q,divisor); return quotient; } int main(){ cout<<"\nEnter dividend:"; cin>>dividend; cout<<"\nEnter divisor:"; cin>>divisor; cout<<"\nQuotient:"<<division(dividend,divisor); cout<<"\nRemainder:"<<remainder; //system("pause"); return 0; }

Yes, it matters. Division is usually defined in such a way that the remainder must be less than the divisor. Let's look at a simple example. You want to divide 5 apples between 2 people. You might say that the answer is 1, with a remainder of 3; but that means that there are still apples to share (without cutting them into fractional parts). The answer 2, with a remainder of 1, more accurately reflects the fact that you can each person, in this example, can have two whole apples. In general, if the remainder is greater than (or equal to) the divisor, it's an indication that the division was not done correctly.

if the dividend is a perfect square and the divisor is its square root

Be more specific. It actually depends what your division problem is. Example: the question for 16 and 4 would be, "What does 16 divided by 4 equal?" Answer your question?

It might help to think of a division (with remainder) as "evenly distributing" some items - for example, give the same number of apples to each person. The "remainder" is whatever is LESS than the number of people (the divisor), so you can't continue distributing one more apple FOR EACH PERSON. If the remaining apples is greater than the number of people, or equal to them, you can distribute one more for each.

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.
