# Steps For Division

Use the steps DMSBDR

If you have a number with a decimal bring it up to the top of your "house".

1.Set up your house with your divisor outside and dividend/whole on the inside.

2. Divide your divisor by your whole/dividend. (See how many times the divisor goes into the dividend.)

3. How ever many times your divisor goes into your dividend then multiply you divisor by how many times it goes into the dividend. EXAMPLE:33)2306. 33 can not go into 2 or 23 but it can go into 230. You can underline it so you know.

5. Bring down the next number in your dividend next to your subtraction answer, in this case 6.

6. Repeat the steps over and over until you have no numbers to bring down. (The answer you get when you subtract is your "new dividend"). Also, put your numbers that you multiply with above the "house".

7. When you subtract the last time and you can not fit your divisor into that number anymore you have a choice.

You have the choice to have a remainder or get a decimal as your answer.
