Definition of Quotient
"Quotient" is the word we use to describe the answer we get when we divide a number by another number.
In the picture, we're dividing the \(12\) pandas up into four groups. Each of the four groups contains \(3\) pandas. This corresponds to the division, \(12 \div 4\). The answer is \(3\), so the quotient is \(3\).
The aim of this dictionary is to provide definitions to common mathematical terms. Students learn a new math skill every week at school, sometimes just before they start a new skill, if they want to look at what a specific term means, this is where this dictionary will become handy and a go-to guide for a student.
