$x+1$ is the $divisor$ $x^{2}+3x+2$ is the $dividend$ $x+2$ is the $quotient$

Work Step by Step

Here, the number that we have to divide is the $dividend$. So dividend is $x^{2}+3x+2$. The number by which we are dividing the $dividend$ (here $x^{2}+3x+2$) is known as the $divisor$ . So the divisor is $x+1$. When we divide the $dividend$ by the $divisor$ (that is $(x^{2}+3x+2$) $\div$ $x+1$ ), the answer we get is the $quotient$ (Here the quotient is x+2 , since $(x^{2}+3x+2$) $\div$ $(x+1)$ = $x+2$
