## Division of 2 numbers

Tool to make a division with large numbers. Division is a basic operation of arithmetic defined as a separation of an amount in equal parts. The usual calculators are limited to small numbers.

### How to calculate a division?

The division operation must be seen as a separation of a number in smaller quantities.

The division can be exact (separation of 10 elements in piles of 2) or have a remainder (separation of 10 elements in piles of 3, 1 element remaining), the latter is also called Euclidean division.

dCode has a tool for realizing the Euclidean division.

Example: 10 divided by 5 is denoted 10/5 or 10÷5 is equal to 2, as it is possible to divide 10 into 2 equal parts of size 5.

Example: 10 divided by 4 is noted 10/4 or 10÷4 is 2.5 because it is possible to make 2 piles of 4 and a pile of 2 (a half pile of 4)

In the case of a non-exact division, it is possible to round the value with a certain number of digits after the decimal point.

### How to calculate a division with big numbers?

DCode uses arbitrary precision calculation algorithms to obtain exact values when dividing big numbers, without scientific notation, up to 1 million digits.

### How to calculate an integer division?

An entire division is similar to a Euclidean division, the principle is not to calculate after the decimal point and to define a remainder.

Example: 14/3 = 4 remainder 2
