# Div(dividend, divisor)

Category: Number function

## Description

This function returns the quotient of two numbers.

## Arguments

Argument | Type | Description |
---|---|---|

dividend | Number | The value being divided. |

divisor | Number (non-zero) | The value the divident is being divided by. |

**Return value type:** Number (Integer)

## Remarks

This function performs division much as the expression *dividend* / *divisor* would, except that only the *whole number* portion is returned. The decimal portion (remainder) is not returned. Refer to the Rem(number, number) function to capture any remainder.

## Examples

div(12,4) //Returns 3

div(15,3) //Returns 5

div(21,5) //Returns 4 (Decimal portion (remainder) is not returned)

div(-14,5) //Returns -2 (Decimal portion (remainder) is not returned)
