# How are denominators and divisors alike?

Apr 18, 2016

When a division is written in the form of a fraction, divisor becomes denominator, while dividend or remainder is numerator.

#### Explanation:

I refer to another question asked today itself which is available here.

In this one has to divide $22690$ by $757$ and while $22690$ is dividend, $757$ is divisor.

The division process leads to $29$ as quotient and $737$ as remainder.

However, when we write the same as improper fraction $\frac{22690}{757}$, which from division process we know is equivalent to $29 \frac{737}{757}$,

in this form i.e. when a division is written in the form of a fraction, divisor becomes denominator, while dividend or remainder is the numerator.
