DIVIDE ()

## Description

• This function shows the division of the numbers.
• Division is one of the four basic operations of arithmetic.
• Division is splitting into equal parts or groups.
• Division is the repeated subtraction and it is the opposite of Multiplication.
• The division of two natural numbers is the process of calculating the number of times one number is contained within one another.
• In DIVIDE(),first number is the dividend and second number is the divisor.
• Dividend is the number being divided.Divisor is a number that will divide the dividend exactly.
• For example,DIVIDE(20,4),20 is the dividend and 4 is the divisor.

## Divisors

• An integer is called a divisor of the number if dividing by leaves no reminder.
• Divisor of a number is also called a factor of a number.
• DIVISORS(10) = 1 2 5 10
• DIVISORS(1..10)
 1 1 2 1 3 1 2 4 1 5 1 2 3 6 1 7 1 2 4 8 1 3 9 1 2 5 10

## Proper Divisor

• The proper divisors of a positive integer N are those numbers, other than N itself, that divide N without remainder.
• For N > 1 they will always include 1, but for N = 1 there are no proper divisors.
• The proper divisors of 6 are 1, 2, and 3.
• PROPERDIVISORS(10) = 1 2 5
• ALIQUOTDIVISORS(15) = 1 3 5

## Examples

1. DIVIDE(1000,50) = 20
2. DIVIDE(300,7) = 42.857142857142854
3. DIVIDE(379.45,22) = 17.24772727272727
4. DIVIDE(-50,5) = -10
5. (10006785432188888888n).divide(2665n) = 3754891344160933
