What is the divisor in math?

In mathematics, a divisor of an integer , also called a factor of , is an integer that may be multiplied by some integer to produce . In this case, one also says that. is a multiple of. An integer is divisible by another integer if is a divisor of ; this implies dividing by. leaves no remainder.

What is the relationship between dividend divisor and quotient?

The number which we divide is called the dividend. The number by which we divide is called the divisor. The result obtained is called the quotient. The number left over is called the remainder.

How does the quotient compared to the dividend when the divisor is greater than 1?

Dividing by 1 gives a quotient equal to the dividend. When the divisor is less than 1, the quotient is larger than the dividend. Decreasing the divisor to 1/2 increases the quotient to 10 1/2 . When the divisor is smaller than the dividend, the quotient is more than 1.

What happens to the quotient when the dividend stays the same and the divisor doubles?

If we double the divisor, the quotient will be half. In other words: The quotient will not change if we multiply the dividend and divisor by the same number, or if we divide them by the same number.

What are the prime factors for 60?

In prime factorization, we express 60 as a product of its prime factors and in the division method, we see what numbers divide 60 exactly.

  • Hence, the factors of 60 are, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30 and 60.
  • Prime factorization is the process of writing a number as a product of its prime factors.

What number is divided by 120?

The list of all positive divisors (i.e., the list of all integers that divide 120) is as follows: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 24, 30, 40, 60, 120.

What is the most abundant number?

The integer 12 is the first abundant number. Its proper divisors are 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 for a total of 16. The amount by which the sum exceeds the number is the abundance. The number 12 has an abundance of 4, for example.
