A quotient is
often taken to mean the result of dividing one number by another.
The number of times one number can be divided exactly into another.
If you divide ten by five, the quotient is two : 10/5 = 2
If you divide thirteen by three, the quotient is four, with a remainder
of one : 13/3 = 4 and remainder 1.
Strictly speaking it is the whole-number part of the
result. For example using a calculator, 589 ÷ 17 gives 34.647059
so the quotient is 34. Another example, the quotient of 13 ÷
5 would be 2 while the remainder would be 3.
