The properties of division are discussed here:
1. If we divide a number by 1 the quotient is the number itself.
For example:
(i) 7542 ÷ 1 = 7542
(ii) 372 ÷ 1 = 372
(iii) 1522 ÷ 1 = 1522
(iv) 1502 ÷ 1 = 1502
(v) 1084 ÷ 1 = 1084
2. If we divide a number by the number itself, the quotient is 1.
For example:
(i) 275 ÷ 275 = 1
(ii) 105 ÷ 105 = 1
(iii) 572 ÷ 572 = 1
(iv) 1027 ÷ 1027 = 1
(v) 1426 ÷ 1426 = 1
3. Division of a number by 0 is meaningless.
For example:
(i) 35 ÷ 0 = no meaning
(ii) 65 ÷ 0 = no meaning
(iii) 29 ÷ 0 = no meaning
(iv) 47 ÷ 0 = no meaning
(v) 86 ÷ 0 = no meaning
4. 0 divided by a number gives 0 as the quotient.
5. Division by 10,100 and 1000
For example:
(i) When a number is divide by 10, the digit in the once place is the remainder.
867 ÷ 10;
Quotient = 86 and Remainder =7.
(ii) When a number is divided by 100, the number formed by the tens and once place is the remainder.
2764 ÷ 100;
Quotient = 7 and Remainder = 456.
