How to do long division - Factors - IntoMath
Division is the opposite operation to multiplication. When we are trying to distribute something evenly or with a remainder among a group of people or split something into smaller components – we are dividing. We cannot divide by 0, since no splitting or sharing is taking place.
We use the ÷ symbol, or sometimes the / symbol to demonstrate division. The symbol ÷, called obelus or obel (from the Greek οβελοσ), was introduced by the Swiss mathematician Johann Henrich Rhan in 1659.
Knowing the multiplication tables can help with division.
