### What is Divisor? Definition with Examples-

A Divisor is a number that divides another number completely or with a Reminder.

**for example-**

Fig.1- Example of Dividend, Divisor, and Quotient |

In Fig.1, On Dividing 6 by 3, we get 2. Here 3 is the number which divides 6 completely into 2 Parts and is known as the

**Divisor.****Note:-**Its sound like Divisor and Factor are both same but it's not actually. A divisor is a number that

**but,**

__divides another number completely or with a reminder__The factor is the number that

**.**__divides another number completely with no Reminder__**For eg.-**

Here, by dividing 21 by 4, we get 5 and Reminder 1. So, here 4 is a Divisor but not a factor.

Fig.2- Equation with Reminder |

**But,**in Fig.1, we divide 6 by 3 and Got 2 with no reminder. so, 3 is a Divisor and a factor of 6.

**Note 2-**A factor is always a Divisor but A divisor can't be always a factor.

### Dividend

A dividend is an amount that you want to Divide.

**dividend**÷ divisor = quotient. For eg.**25**÷ 5 = 5, Here 25 is Dividend.### Quotient
