### The steps in long division

1. 1. The Steps in Long Division By Miss B.
2. 2. Does McDonalds Sell Cheese Burgers?O Use this helpful phrase to remember the steps of long division.
3. 3. Before We get StartedO Underline the first digit of the dividend (inside box)O Can I make a group of 6 with 2 marbles?O Underline the 4O Can I make groups of 6 with 24 marbles? YES!O You will place the 1st digit of your quotient (answer) above the 4. 6 246O Place an x here as well as above any digits to the right in the dividend.O Your will have 2 digits in your quotient
4. 4. Step 1: Does (Divide)O How many groups of 6 can you make with 24 marbles?O Use objects or a multiplication 4 table to help you. 6 246O You can make 4 groups of 6O Write the 4 above the 4 in the dividend
5. 5. Step 2: McDonalds (Multiply)O Multiply the 4 in the quotient by the 6 (divisor)O Write the 4 product under 6 246 the 24 you underlined in 24 the before we start step
6. 6. Step 3: Sell (Subtract)O Subtract your product from the underlined number in the 4 dividend. 6 246 24 00
7. 7. Step 4: Cheese (Check)O Check that your difference is less than your divisor. 4O If it is not, you 6 246 need to check steps 1-3. 24O If it is, you are 00 set to move on to step 5
8. 8. Step 5: Burgers (Bring Down)O Next bring down the next number in the dividend.O If it is equal to or larger than your divisor repeat the steps.O If it is less than the divisor, place a 0 to hold the place value in the 4 quotient and then bring down the next number in the dividend. (see 6 246 example 2)O If there are no more numbers in the dividend, 24 what ever is left over becomes the remainder. (see example 2) 0 06
9. 9. Step 1: Does (Divide)O How many groups of 6 can you make with 6 marbles?O Use objects or a multiplication 41 table to help you. 6 246O You can make 1 group of 6 24O Write the 1 above the 6 in the dividend. 6 0 06
10. 10. Step 2: McDonalds (Multiply)O Multiply the 1 in the quotient by the 6 (divisor)O Write the 41 product under 6 246 the 6. 24 6 0 06 6
11. 11. Step 3: Sell (Subtract)O Subtract your product from the 6. 41 6 246 24 6 0 06 6 0
12. 12. Step 4: Cheese (Check)O Check that your difference is less than your divisor. 41O If it is not, you 6 246 need to check steps 1-3. 24O If it is, you are 6 0 06 set to move on to step 5 6 0
13. 13. Step 5: Burgers (Bring Down)O If your difference is 0 and there is nothing Your answer is 41! left to bring down, you are finished!O If there is another digit in the dividend to bring down start the steps 41 again.O If your difference is not 0, but less than the 6 246 divisor and there are no other numbers to 24 bring down, the difference becomes the remainder. 6 0 06 6 0
14. 14. How can you check your answer?O Multiply the quotient by the divisor.O If your product 41 is the dividend, 6 246 you are correct! 41 x 6 246
15. 15. Example 2O If it is less than the divisor, place a 0 to hold the place value in the quotient and then bring down the 4 0 R5 next number in the dividend. 6 245O If there are no 24 other numbers to bring down, it becomes the 005 remainder.
