A group approach to the solution of a problem by breaking it down and having members of the group solve different parts of the problem simultaneously. Rooted from the historic strategy of powerful empires/rulers separating their enemies among themselves before attacking them; separating a large army into smaller divisions to be able to defeat each smaller portion at a time.
*Working on group school project* "Let's divide and conquer this thing. Let's break it down into four parts and all four of us can pick one to do."
