## Algebra: A Combined Approach (4th Edition)

18 is the $dividend$ , the 3 $quotient$ , and the 6 is the $divisor$
Here, the number that we have to divide is the $dividend$. So dividend is 18. The number by which we are dividing the $dividend$ (here 18) is known as the $divisor$ . So the divisor is 6. When we divide the $dividend$ by the $divisor$ (that is 18$\div$3), the answer we get is the $quotient$ (Here the quotient is 3, since 18$\div$3 = 3)
