  Quotient space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In topology and related areas of mathematics, a quotient space (also called an identification space) is, intuitively speaking, the result of identifying or "gluing together" certain points of a given space.
We define a topology on the quotient set X/~ (the set consisting of all equivalence classes of ~) as follows: a set of equivalence classes in X/~ is open if and only if their union is open in X.
The quotient space X/~ is then homeomorphic to Y (with its quotient topology) via the homeomorphism which sends the equivalence class of x to f(x).

 Quotient - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A quotient can also mean just the integral part of the result of dividing two integers.
In more abstract branches of mathematics, the word quotient is often used to describe sets, spaces, or algebraic structures whose elements are the equivalence classes of some equivalence relation on another set, space, or algebraic structure.
Quotients also come up in certain tests, like the IQ test, which stands for Intelligence Quotient.

 Location Quotient Technique Page
The location quotient technique is based upon a calculated ratio between the local economy and the economy of some reference unit.
Instead, location quotients are calculated for all industries to determine whether or not the local economy has a greater share of each industry than expected when compared to a reference economy.
Location quotients may also be calculated that compare the county to a state.

Therefore the quotient number is placed two rods to the left of the dividend.
Therefore the quotient number is placed one rod to the left of the dividend.
This way the unit number in the quotient will naturally fall on unit rod E with the first decimal falling on rod F. Using the Professor's method, what looks to be a complicated decimal problem becomes much more manageable.

 CLHS: Function FLOOR, FFLOOR, CEILING, FCEILING...
floor and ffloor produce a quotient that has been truncated toward negative infinity; that is, the quotient represents the largest mathematical integer that is not larger than the mathematical quotient.
truncate and ftruncate produce a quotient that has been truncated towards zero; that is, the quotient represents the mathematical integer of the same sign as the mathematical quotient, and that has the greatest integral magnitude not greater than that of the mathematical quotient.
round and fround produce a quotient that has been rounded to the nearest mathematical integer; if the mathematical quotient is exactly halfway between two integers, (that is, it has the form integer+1/2), then the quotient has been rounded to the even (divisible by two) integer.
