## 1. Dividing by a Specific Number to Create a Division Formula in Excel

We can divide any number by a specific number in Excel easily.

Suppose, we have the following dataset as **Branch Number**, **Sales in a Week**. We need to calculate **Sales Per Day** in column **D**. So, we will divide the entire columnÂ **CÂ **with a specific number.

- Firstly, write the formula in the
**D5**cell like this.

`=C5/7`

Here, **C5 **refers to **Sales in a Week** of **Branch 1**. As a week has 7 days thatâ€™s why we have divided it by 7.

- Secondly, press
**ENTER**to get the output as 49.29. - Thirdly, use the
**Fill Handle**by dragging down the cursor while holding it at the right-bottom corner of the**D5**cell.

- Eventually, weâ€™ll get the outputs like this.

## 2. Using Absolute Cell Reference to Divide Values

In Excel, when we use **Fill Handle** the cell references normally change according to the reference cells in the formula. But we can also use an absolute cell reference in the division formula to divide values.

In the following dataset, we need to calculate sales per day in column **D**, and here, the cell reference is **G4**. It has a value of 10.

So, firstly, write the formula in the **D5 **cell like this.

`=C5/$G$4`

Here, **$G$4** is the absolute cell reference. The **$** sign has made it absolute and it will not change in the case of using **Fill Handle**.

- Secondly, press
**ENTER**. - Thirdly, use the
**Fill Handle**. - Consequently, the output is like this.

## 3. Utilizing QUOTIENT Function to Divide Multiple Cells

We can use **the QUOTIENT function** to divide multiple cells. This function includes multiple cells and gives an output of their division.

Suppose, in the following dataset, we have column headers as **Number**, and **Divisor**. We need to get the output in column** D**.

- Firstly, write the formula in the
**D5**cell like this.

`=QUOTIENT(B5,C5)`

- Secondly, press
**ENTER**. - Thirdly, use the
**Fill Handle**. - And all the outputs will be like this.

## Excel Division Formula for Percentage

We can divide a number by a percentage value and get an output easily. In the following figure, we have the total discount of products and discount percentages in columns** C** and **D** respectively. We need to calculate the actual price in column** E**.

Firstly, write the formula in the **E5 **cell.

`=C5/D5`

Secondly, press **ENTER **and use the **Fill Handle** to get the output like this.

## How to Handle #DIV/0! Error While Dividing Cells in Excel

Sometimes, while using division, we face **#DIV/0!** error. This error can occur when the divisor is** 0**. Because something divided by 0 gives an error as output. In the following figure, column **D** values are the outputs of **Column B**/ **Column C**. Here, we can see that the divisors in column **C** are zero. So, the output becomes **#DIV/0!**.

The solution to this can be.

- We need to change the reference cell which contains a non-zero value
- Changing the divisor to a non-zero value
- Putting
**#N/A**in the divisor cells.**#N/A**actually means blank cell.

So, changing the Divisor to a non-zero value gives the output like this.

Additionally, putting **#N/A** in the Divisor doesnâ€™t give a **#DIV/0!** error.
