# Explain how a dividend of zero affects the quotient

I can explain how a dividend of zero affects the quotient.

## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- If the dividend is zero, then the quotient will be zero.
- Zero divided by any number is equal to zero.

### Common misconception

Children assume that the answer to all questions posed is 0 because that is the focus.

Always encourage children to read an equation aloud and describe the role of each number within it. Relating each to a context can help children to visualise the mathematics when 0 feels abstract.

### Keywords

Dividend - The dividend is what we are dividing.

Quotient - The quotient is the result after division has taken place.
