# How do you translate "the quotient of a number N and 4" into an algebraic expression?

Jun 27, 2015

This can be written as an algebraic expression as $\frac{N}{4}$ or as $N \div 4$
The word "quotient" comes from the Latin "quotiens" meaning "how many times?", as in "How many times does $4$ go into $N$?"
