In mathematics, a quotient is the result of dividing one number by another. It is the answer obtained when we divide one number by another

. For example, if we divide 6 by 3, we get the result as 2, which is the quotient. The quotient can be an integer or a decimal number. For exact divisions such as 10 ÷ 5 = 2, we have an integer as a quotient, and for divisions such as 12 ÷ 5 = 2.4, the quotient is a decimal

. A quotient can come in a variety of forms, such as whole numbers and decimals
