## UnkleRhaukus 3 years ago What is the quotient of one and two

1. CliffSedge

*is suspicious* 'one' and 'two' what?

2. UnkleRhaukus

one and two numbers

3. CliffSedge

So, one number divided by two others?

4. UnkleRhaukus

*one and two are numbers

5. CliffSedge

I'm going to go out on a limb here and post the obvious answer of one-half.

6. UnkleRhaukus

that is not the quotient, that is the remainder

7. CliffSedge

So you're saying that after I combine two halves to make a whole, there is still something left over?

8. cruffo

0?

9. CliffSedge

10. CliffSedge

If by "what is the quotient of one and two," and you don't mean one divided by two, then what are the divisors? If one-half is the remainder, is that the remainder for both separate dividends?

11. UnkleRhaukus

cruffo is right

12. cruffo

dividind / divisor = quotient + remainder

13. cruffo

*dividend :)

14. spidergirl51

?

15. cruffo

It's just one of those "make you think about something you already know" kind of questions ...

16. spidergirl51

oh okay i got confused

17. cruffo

\(1 \div 2 = 0 + R1\)

18. CliffSedge

Let Q = quotient. 1 ÷ 2 = Q Q = 0 + R Q = ?
