5.See how many times 96 can go in 4 it cant see how many time 96 can go in 47 it cant see how many times 96 can go in 475 it can go 4 times so put the 4 on top of 5 and you have 91 left and you cant put 96 in 91 you cant so you add the two and you get 912

6. See how many times 96 can go in 912 it can go in 9 time and put nine on top of the 2 and you have 48 left from putting 96 in 864
