StepsSet up the equation. On a piece of paper, write the dividend (number being divided) on the right, under the division symbol, and the divisor (number doing the division) to the left on the outside. Divide the first digit. Divide the first two digits. Enter the first digit of the quotient.
Similarly, how do you do short division? To do short division, place the divisor outside the division bar and the dividend inside the division bar. Next, divide the first number of the dividend by the divisor and write the remainder next to the first number of the dividend.
Considering this, how do you divide without a calculator?
Basic Long DivisionDetermine how many times the divisor will go into the first digit of the dividend. Bring the next digit down, next to the remainder from the first digit. Divide the new number by the divisor. Bring the next digit down. Divide the new number by the divisor. Bring the next digit down.
How do you do long division with 2 digits?
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.
