# What is a partial quotient?

**partial quotient**refers to a method used in solving large division mathematical problems. The method uses simple logic by allowing the student to see the problem in a less abstract form.

Herein, what is an example of a partial quotient?

The **partial quotients** method (sometimes also called chunking) uses repeated subtraction to solve simple division questions. When dividing a large number (dividend) by a small number (divisor) Step 1: Subtract from the dividend an easy multiple (for **example** 100×, 10×, 5× 2×, etc.) of the divisor.

One may also ask, how can you use partial quotients to find 325 divided by 13? **Answer**

- Answer. 4.0/5.

- 325÷13. Set up the long division. 13|325. Calculate 32 ÷ 13, which is 2 with a remainder of 6. 213|325266. Bring down 5, so that 65 is large enough to be divided by 13. 213|3252665.

Secondly, how is partial quotients similar to distributive property?

**Distributive property** of division: As per this **property** division of the sum of two or more numbers by a number gives the same result as dividing each number individually by the number and then adding the numbers together. Therefore, a **partial quotient** to divide is same as using **distributive property** by division.

What is partial products in division?

In **partial**-quotients **division**, it takes several steps to find the quotient. At each step, you find a **partial** answer (called a **partial** quotient); then you find the **product** of the **partial** quotient and divisor and subtract it from the dividend. Finally, you add all the **partial** quotients to find the final quotient.
