NOTE ON THE OPERATION OF WHOLE NUMBERS

 NOTE ON THE OPERATION OF WHOLE NUMBERS

 

When adding two numbers the result is called "sum or total” example the sum of 2 and 4 is 6

i. e. (2 + 4 = 6).

When subtract two numbers the answer is called "the difference”  example the difference of 10 and 6 is 4  i.e. (10 – 6 = 4)

When multiply two numbers the answer is called " the product” example the product of 3 and 5 is 15

i.e. (3 x 5 = 15) here 3 is multiplier, 5 is multiplicand and 15 is the product.

When dividing two numbers the result is called "the quotient” example 45 ÷ 5 = 9, here 45 is dividend, 5 is divisor and 9 is the quotient.


SUMMARY:

Augend  +  Addend  = Sum/Total

Minuend - Subtrahend = Difference

Multiplier  x Multiplicand = Factor  x  Factor  = Product

Dividend ÷ Divisor  = Quotient, remainder left over if divisor does not divide dividend
