# Explain the process of division.

**Process of Division :**

The division is a method of distributing a group of things into equal parts. It is one of the four basic operations of arithmetic, which gives a fair result of sharing.

The division is inverse of multiplication.

We use the $÷$ symbol,

$20 ÷ 4 = 5$

For example,

**6546 divided by 123.**

- Divide the dividend's numbers by the divisor’s numbers.
- Divide the dividend’s first number by the divisor’s first number.
- 6 divided by 1 is 6.
- Multiply the divisor (123) by 6 and see if it is less than the first 3 digits of dividend. If not, multiply by 5 and check.
- Place the result underneath the dividend’s 3 digits and subtract.

123) 6546 (53

615

--------

396

369

----------

27

Bring down the dividend’s next number and divide as you did in the last step until there are no more numbers left.

Therefore,

$Dividend = Quotient \times Divisor + Remainder$

Verification:

$6546 = 53 \times 123 + 27$
