If you have to divide 13 by 4. Then it means nothing but asking some one ,that how many time s/he can subtract 4 fully out of 13. So,.... (1)13-4 =9 (2)9-4=5 (3)5-4=1 So we can subtract 4 ,3times out of 13 fully and after that 1 remains .. So...1 is remainder and what times (means 3) 4 was subtracted fully was quotient. So,as multiplication is addition,similarly division is subtraction.....no. of times.

mathematically, quotient is the number obtained by dividing two numbers and remainder is the number remaining when two numbers are divided. x = 5 y = 10 z = 13 #quotient a = y / x print a #output is 2 a = y % x print a #output is 0 a = z / x print a #output is 2.6 in Python 3 a = z // x print a #output is 2 since // is integer division a = z % x print a #output is 3 hope this helps some.
