This can be written as an algebraic expression as $\frac{N}{4}$ or as $N \div 4$

Either is acceptable.

#### Explanation:

The word "quotient" comes from the Latin "quotiens" meaning "how many times?", as in "How many times does $4$ go into $N$?"

So it is talking about division of one number by another.
