6. Now, try to divide the number in the hundreds column (7) by 3:
3 7 4 1
7. Now, try to divide the number in the hundreds column (7) by 3:
7÷ 3 = 2 remainder 1
3 7 4 1
8. Now, try to divide the number in the hundreds column (7) by 3:
7÷ 3 = 2 remainder 1
The 2 is placed directly above the 7
3 7 4 1
9. Now, try to divide the number in the hundreds column (7) by 3:
7÷ 3 = 2 remainder 1
The 2 is placed directly above the 7

3 7 4 1
10. Now, try to divide the number in the hundreds column (7) by 3:
7÷ 3 = 2 remainder 1
And the remainder (1) is placed next to the 4 in the tens column
2
3 7 4 1
11. Now, try to divide the number in the hundreds column (7) by 3:
7÷ 3 = 2 remainder 1
And the remainder (1) is placed next to the 4 in the tens column

16. Now, divide the new number in the tens column (14) by 3:
14 ÷ 3 = 4 remainder 2
And the remainder of 2 is placed next to the 1 in the units
2 4
3 7 4 1

20. Finally divide the new number in the units column (21) by 3:
21 ÷ 3 = 7
The 7 is placed directly above the 21 in the units column
2 4
3 7 4 1
1
2
21. Finally divide the new number in the units column (21) by 3:
21 ÷ 3 = 7
The 7 is placed directly above the 21 in the units column
2 4 7
3 7 4 1
