Hint: The number or value or amount that we divide is known as a ‘dividend’
Divisor $\to$ The number which divides the dividend is known as divisor.
Quotient $\to$ the result obtained from the division process is known as a quotient
Remainder $\to$The number left over after the division process is known as the remainder.
The formula to find the dividend is
$Dividend = Divisor \times Quotient + \operatorname{Re} mainder$
Usually we divide a number by another number, it results in a answer, such that
$\dfrac{A}{B} = C$
Here ‘A’ is the dividend B is the divisor and ‘C’ is the quotient.
$\dfrac{{Dividend}}{{Divisor}} = Quotient$
We can write
$Dividend = Divisor \times Quotient$
If any remainder is left after the division method then
$Dividend = Divisor \times Quotient + remainder$

Given,
Divisor $= 21$
quotient $= 43$
remainder $= 19$
Now, we use the dividend formula.
$Dividend = Divisor \times Quotient + remainder$
$= 21 \times 43 + 19$
$= 903 + 19$
$= 922$
Hence the dividend is 922.

Note: The division is a method of distributing a group of things into equal parts. It is one of the four basic operations of arithmetic, which gives a fair result of sharing. The division is an operation inverse of multiplication.
Dividend is the whole which is to be divided into different equal parts.
For example: - if 10 is divided by 2, then the answer will be two equal parts of number 5 and 10 is the dividend.
