Lohith's Division Stratagies

Algorithm

Have you ever known different types of division problem solving strategies? Well we can start of with the basic algorithm. Look at this problem for an example.

The first step to the algorithm would be to take the digit in the highest place value (which in this case would be a 6) and see if the divisor can fit in to it at least one time which in this case would not. If the divisor can not fit into the dividend than put a 0 on top of the box like this

and subtract zero from the 6 like this.

Then you would bring down the 5 like shown. Then you would check the number which is currently 65 and see how many times the divisor would go into 65 which would be 9 times. Because it goes into 65 nine times you would put nine before the 0 like this.

After that you bring down the next number and you would do the same process over until you are out of numbers. Hopefully you will find this video use full!
