Division is a very important mathematical operation. When a number (dividend) can’t be divided exactly by another number (divisor) then there remains a remainder. In that case, the result becomes a number with a fraction. We can easily remove the fractional part and get the quotient in **Excel**. In this article, I will show **3 **effective methods to **divide without remainder in Excel**.

## 3 Effective Methods to Divide Without Remainder in Excel

We can divide a number without remainder in **Excel **following different methods. Here, I will show **3 **effective methods to divide a number and get the quotient.

### 1. Use QUOTIENT Function

In this section, I will use **the QUOTIENT function **of **Excel **to divide without remainder. For demonstration, I have used a dataset containing **Dividend**, **Divisor **and **Quotient**.

#### 1.1 Apply Numeric Value to Divide Without Remainder in Excel

We can use dividend and divisor numbers directly as the arguments of the **QUOTIENT **function. Let’s walk through the procedures.

- First, write the following formula in
**Cell D5**and press**Enter**.

`=QUOTIENT(112,5)`

**122**(dividend) and

**5**(divisor) as the argument of the

**QUOTIENT**function.

- After that, drag the
**Fill Handle**down to**Cell D10**. - Finally, you will get results like the picture below.

#### 1.2 Use Cell Reference to Perform Division Without Remainder

Instead of directly including the numbers as the arguments of the **QUOTIENT **function, we can use cell reference also. I am showing the stepwise procedure to do that.

- First, write the following formula in
**Cell D5**and press**Enter**.

`=QUOTIENT(B5,C5)`

- Further, use the
**AutoFill**option of**Excel**to copy the formula in the cells below. - Consecutively, we will see the result without the remainder in each cell.

### 2. Apply TRUNC Function

Another way to divide without remainder is to round the fractional result by using **the TRUNC function**. I am showing the stepwise procedures to do that in the following section.

- First, write the following formula in
**Cell D5**and hit**Enter**.

`=TRUNC(B5/C5)`

- Afterward, use the
**Fill Handle**to copy the formula in the following cells. - Finally, we will see the division result without the remainder.

**TRUNC**function removes the fractional part which is the remainder of the result of division (

**B5/C5**).

### 3. Insert ROUNDDOWN Function

We can also use **the ROUNDDOWN function **of **Excel **to remove the fractional part of the division result and get the quotient value. Follow the stepwise procedures given below.

- First, write the following formula in
**Cell D5**.

`=ROUNDDOWN(B5/C5,0)`

- Then, hit
**Enter**. - Further, use the
**Fill Handle**to copy the formula in the following cells. - Finally, we will see the results without the fractional part in each cell.

**ROUNDDOWN**function removes the fractional part from the division value (

**B5/C5**) as we included

**0**as the argument.

## How to Find Remainder in Excel

When a dividend number isn’t completely divisible by the divisor, there remains a remainder. In this section, I will show the method to find the remainder in **Excel**. Follow the stepwise procedures given below.

- First, write the following formula in
**Cell D5**.

`=MOD(B5,C5)`

- Then, press
**Enter**. - Further, use the
**Fill Handle**to copy the formula in the cells below. - Finally, we will see the remainder for each division.

**the MOD function**takes the dividend value (

**B5**) and divisor value (

**C5**) as arguments and gives the remainder directly.
