PREP FOR GMAT: Parts of Dividing a number

In a division problem:
The number that is divided is called the dividend.
The number that divides the dividend is called divisor.
The number of times the dividend is divisible by the divisor is called the quotient.
If the dividend is completely not divisible by the divisor it leaves behind a remainder.

Dividend = (Quotient x Divisor) + Remainder

example 45 = (15 X 3 ) + 0
