Quotient  Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 
  For example, in the problem 6 ÷ 3, the quotient would be 2, while 6 would be called the dividend, and 3 the divisor. 
  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.
