Division , from Latin division, is the trigger and the result of dividing (set aside, dose, distribute, disintegrate). In the field of mathematics , the division is a arithmetic operation where a figure breaks down .
The mathematical division, therefore, looks for the value called quotient, which represents the number of times a number (called dividend) in another (known as a divisor), through a standardized procedure, which can vary according to the country, although not significantly.
Division can result exact (if the rest is zero) or inaccurate (when the rest is different from zero). When the division is inaccurate, it means that the divisor does not appear contained a quantity exact times in the dividend, but there is a remainder. For example: 6 / 2 = 3 ("Six divided two equals three") is an exact division.
The operation reverse to division is the multiplication . Following the previous example, it can be said that 3 x 2 = 6 ("Three times two equals six") since the dividend is equal to the quotient multiplied by the divisor plus the rest (6 = 3 x 2 + 0 ).
Generally, division is usually considered the most complex operation, taking into account only the four basic ones. It is very likely that a person reluctant to mathematical calculations can solve with some ease a sum or a subtraction, or even a multiplication, provided that they are few figures and that decimal numbers do not come into play. But the division has a intimidating power much older. If you think carefully about your objectiveIt is difficult to understand that it generates more rejection than its inverse: if, for example, we take 14 pencils and we must divide them by 2, we will have the mental image of all the elements, and it will simply be necessary to group them; on the contrary, when trying to solve 2 pencils by 7, we cannot visualize from the beginning the total volume of elements, with which account It should cost us more.
TO military level , a division is a unit composed of two or more regiments that is provided with auxiliary services : “The 1st Infantry Division is already in enemy territory and is ready to enter combat”.
Division is also the group in which sports teams or athletes participate according to their category : "The green-black team achieved promotion to the first division after winning a new victory".
In the jargon legal, the so-called division or separation of marital property refers to a legal procedure that allows both members of a marriage to obtain a part of the commercial property, the material assets that they acquired after the link. It can also be a prenuptial contract, in which case it will record the belongings of each spouse before getting married, so that they do not enter into a potential distribution, in case of divorce.
He marriage, before the law, it is only a society and, as such, its heritage is as important an part of the equation as the people in question. In this way, no matter the sentimental issues that lead to a separation, the division of property is mandatory once said union is over. With this same rule, children are measured, property assets that must be distributed, supposedly looking for the best for them. If any of the above points is not specified at the beginning of the process, it will be justice who decides how to act in each case, after a relevant evaluation.
At language everyday, finally, the division is associated with the dissociation or discrepancy : “These policies do nothing more than encourage the division of the people”.
