we can multiply the divisor & the quotient to find the dividend

It is not just in fractions. In general, division can be defined as multiplication by the reciprocal. For example, dividing by 5 is the same as multiplying by 0.2. However, it is mainly in calculations with fractions that this is normally used as a practical way of doing the calculations.

Divide the divisor into the dividend which will result as a quotient and sometimes having a remainder

The three parts to a division problem are: Dividend, Divisor, and Qoutient. To calculate the value of any of the terms, two of the terms need to be known values. To calculate the dividend, multiply the quotient by the divisor.

A sentence can say "The divisor in this division problem is 26". The word 'divisor' is a mathematics vocabulary that people get confused with 'dividend'. I hope you don't get mixed up with those similar words. By the way, 'dividend' means the number you are going to divide the divisor to get a quotient. A quotient is an answer to a division problem.That's all the vocabulary you need to know for a division problem.

The answer to a division is the quotient

The remainder of two positive integers can be calculated by first dividing one number (the dividend) by the other (the divisor) using integer division (ignoring any fractional component). Multiply this quotient by the divisor, then subtract the product from the dividend. The result is the remainder. Alternatively, while the dividend remains greater than the divisor, subtract the divisor from the dividend and repeat until the dividend is smaller than the divisor. The dividend is then the remainder.
