# How do you solve long division step by step?

## How do you solve long division step by step?

The steps are more or less the same, except for one new addition:

- Divide the tens column dividend by the divisor.
- Multiply the divisor by the quotient in the tens place column.
- Subtract the product from the divisor.
- Bring down the dividend in the ones column and repeat.

## How do you do long division on a calculator?

Doing a long division with decimals or remainders? The long division calculator helps you out. Just put the divisor in the left input field and the dividend in the right input field and click on the button “calculate long division”.

**What is the remainder of 46 divided by 8?**

Using a calculator, if you typed in 46 divided by 8, you’d get 5.75. You could also express 46/8 as a mixed fraction: 5 6/8. If you look at the mixed fraction 5 6/8, you’ll see that the numerator is the same as the remainder (6), the denominator is our original divisor (8), and the whole number is our final answer (5).

**How do you do division with 2 digit numbers?**

Divide the first number of the dividend (or the two first numbers if the previous step took another digit) by the first digit of the divisor. Write the result of this division in the space of the quotient. Multiply the digit of the quotient by the divisor, write the result beneath the dividend and subtract it.

### What is a basic division fact?

When teachers talk about division facts, they mean the division number sentences related to times tables. Therefore: 30 ÷ 3 = 10, 27 ÷ 3 = 9 and 24 ÷ 3 = 8 are all division facts for the three times table.

### What is the rule for division?

When students see a number that ends in an even digit, they should know the number can be divided into two evenly. However, numbers that end in odd digits can be divided by two, they’ll just have a remainder or decimal.

**How do you explain division?**

Division is breaking a number up into an equal number of parts. Example: 20 divided by 4 = ? If you take 20 things and put them into four equal sized groups, there will be 5 things in each group.

**How do you teach basic division?**

Before your child can begin to practice division problems, they first need to understand the concept of division. Explain it to them by relating the idea of division to the idea of sharing. Help them conceptualize it by explaining how a number of items can be shared equally between groups, and give them examples.

#### What is the short division method?

In arithmetic, short division is a division algorithm which breaks down a division problem into a series of easy steps. The answer to the problem would be the quotient, and in the case of Euclidean division, the remainder would be included as well.

#### How do you do short division without remainders?

How to do Short Division without Remainders

- Write the number being divided and consider each of its digit from left to right.
- Divide each digit in the number separately by the number being divided by.
- Write the answer to each of these divisions above each digit.

**How do you divide a 4 digit number by a 2 digit number?**

To divide a four-digit number by a two-digit number (for example 3654 47), follow these steps:

- Place the divisor (47) before the division bracket and place the dividend (3654) under it.
- Examine the first two digits of the dividend (36).
- Multiply the 7 by 47 and place the result (329) below the 365 of the dividend.

**How do you do the 3 digit bus stop method?**

The bus stop method can also be used to divide three-digit numbers by two-digit numbers: I start by working out how many times 23 will go into 54. It goes in twice, so I put 2 above the 4. There is a remainder of 8, which I put next to the 7.

## Why is it called the bus stop method?

It’s also known as short division, so you might have heard of it under that name. As children start working with increasingly large numbers, they’ll no longer be able to divide numbers in their head. That’s where the bus stop division method comes in handy!

## How do you do long multiplication?

Long multiplication is a method of multiplying two numbers which are difficult to multiply easily. For example, we can easily find the product of 55 × 20 by multiplying 55 by 2 and then adding a 0 at the rightmost place of the answer. 55 × 2 = 110 and 55 × 20 = 1100.
