Estimate the quotient calculator is a simple and powerful tool which helps you to calculate the estimated quotient within seconds.

You have to enter the dividend and divisor and then click on the Calculate button. This program calculates and displays the estimated quotient on the screen.

What is the Estimated Quotient?

The division is quite a tough job for most of the people. Suppose someone asked you to divide 847 by 47. Most of us can solve this question but it will take a bit of our time to solve this problem, On the other hand, if someone asked you to divide 800 by 50, you can easily tell the answer is 16. Here 16 is the estimated quotient.

In mathematics, estimating the answer to get a rough and approximate idea of the answer is quite popular. It not only saves a lot of our time but also helps us to know the approximate answer beforehand.

How to Calculate the Estimated Quotient?

To estimate the quotient, follow these steps:

1. To estimate the quotient, first round off the dividend and the divisor to their nearest tens, hundreds, or thousand places.

2. Now, divide the rounded numbers.

The result obtained after dividing the rounded numbers is our estimated quotient.

Example 1: Find the estimated quotient of 244 / 22.

Let a = 244 and b = 22.

After rounding off both the dividend and the divisor, we get:

a = 240 and b = 20

Now, estimated quotient = a / b => 240 / 20 => 12.

Therefore, the estimated quotient is 12.
