Here is a division problem to work
                out:




       14 167
Step 1 is Divide

We need to decide how many times 14 will go
into 16.




                   1
It will go 1 time.




   ...
Step 2 Multiply
We need to multiply 14 x 1.

     1
 14 16
            14
The next step is to
Subtract.
         1
     14 16
           - 14
              2
Step 3 is to Check.
   We need to make sure that the
answer to our subtraction problem is
    smaller than our divisor, 14...
The next step is to Bring Down.

            7
       14 16
            - 14
               27
The next step is to Repeat. We go back to step
one and Divide. We need to decide how many
times 14 will go into 27.

Long Division Tutorial

  1. 1. Long Division
  2. 2. We are going to divide. It is easy to do, as long as you follow the steps. Division is like a recipe. The steps must be followed precisely and in order for the problem to come out correctly. The following silly sentence will help you remember the division steps: Do Monkeys Sniff Brown Rats? D = Divide M = Multiply S = Subtract B = Bring down R = Repeat or Remainder
  3. 3. Here is a division problem to work out: 14 167
  4. 4. Step 1 is Divide We need to decide how many times 14 will go into 16. 1 It will go 1 time. 14 16
  5. 5. Step 2 Multiply We need to multiply 14 x 1. 1 14 16 14
  6. 6. The next step is to Subtract. 1 14 16 - 14 2
  7. 7. Step 3 is to Check. We need to make sure that the answer to our subtraction problem is smaller than our divisor, 14. 1 14 16 - 14 2 2 is smaller than 14, so we can go to the Next step.
  8. 8. The next step is to Bring Down. 1 7 14 16 - 14 27
  9. 9. The next step is to Repeat. We go back to step one and Divide. We need to decide how many times 14 will go into 27. 14 x 2 = 28 and that is bigger than 27. So we will use 14 x 1 = 14.
  10. 10. 1 1 7 14 16 14 27
  11. 11. The next step is to Multiply. 1 1 7 14 16 - 14 27 14
  12. 12. The next step is to Subtract. 1 1 7 14 16 - 14 27 - 14 13
  13. 13. The next step is to Check. We need to be sure that the answer to our subtraction problem is less than the divisor 14. 1 1 7 14 16 - 14 Since it is, we can go on to the next step. 27 - 14 13
  14. 14. The next step is to Bring Down. Since there are no numbers to bring down, we do not repeat, but use the 13 as our Remainder. 1 R 13 1 7 14 16 - 14 27 - 14 13
