## Monkeyin' Around With Long DivisionPresentation Transcript

• Long Division
• Important Terms:
• Dividend- The number that is being divided
___6
3 ) 18
The dividend is 18.
• Divisor - The number that divides the dividend
___6
3 ) 18
The divisor is 3.
• Quotient- The answer in a division problem
___6
3 ) 18
The quotient is 6.
• How To Do
Long Division…
• To remember the steps of long division, ask yourself this question…
Do Monkeys Stop Being Rowdy?
D = Divide
M = Multiply
S = Subtract
B = Bring down
R = Repeat or Remainder
• Let’s try this problem…
______
5 ) 5 6 5
• Step 1 - Divide
We decide how many times 5will go into 5
(what number times 5= 5?)
__1___
5 ) 5 6 5
It will go 1 time>>>>>>>
**Write your answer OVER the line OVER the 1st digit
• Step 2 - Multiply
We multiply 5x 1.
.
__1___
5 ) 5 6 5
5
5 x 1 = >>>>>>>
**Write your answer UNDER the 1st digit
• Step 3 - Subtract
We subtract 5 from 5.
.
__1___
5 ) 5 6 5
- 5
0
• Step 4 – Bring Down
We BRING DOWN the next digit.
.
__1________
5 ) 5 6 5
- 5
0 6
• Step 5 – Repeat or Remainder?
The next step is to Repeat.
We go back to step one and start over.
**When there are no more numbers in the dividend to bring down, then the left over number becomes our Remainder
• Step 1 - Divide
We decide how many times 5will go into 6
_ 1 1__
5 ) 5 6 5
- 5__
0 6
It will go 1 time>>>>>>>
**Write your answer OVER the line OVER the 2nd digit
• Step 2 - Multiply
We multiply 5x 1.
.

5 x 1 = >>>>>>>
**Write your answer UNDER the 1st and 2nd digits
• Step 3 - Subtract
We subtract 5 from 6.

• Step 4 – Bring Down
We BRING DOWN the next digit.

• Step 5 – Repeat or Remainder?
The next step is to Repeat.
We go back to step one and start over.
**Remember… When there are no more numbers in the dividend to bring down, then the left over number becomes our Remainder
• Step 1 - Divide
We decide how many times 5will go into 15
(what number times 5 = 15?)
_ 1 1 3_

15
It will go 3 times>>>>>>>
**Write your answer OVER the line OVER the 3rd digit
• Step 2 - Multiply
We multiply 5x 3.
.

5 x 3 = >>>>>>>
**Write your answer UNDER the 2nd and 3rd digits
• Step 3 - Subtract
We subtract 15 from 15.

WAIT!!!!!!!
• There Are No More Digits To Bring Down…
So…
• Step 5 –Remainder
When there are no more numbers in the dividend to bring down, then the left over number becomes our Remainder

- 1 5
0 <<< this is our remainder
• I guess those
