Can someone please explain how we derive this formula - y/x=Q+r/x with an Example.

Hi rijain

We already know that dividend (y) = divisor (x) * quotient (Q) + remainder (r) ie. y = xQ + r.

Now if you divide both sides of this expression by x you get. y/x = (xQ + r)/x => y/x = xQ/x + r/x => y/x = Q + r/x.

Hope it helps.!
