Long division is a method for dividing huge numbers. In a long division, the dividend is the large number that is divided by another number called the divisor. The quotient is the result of the division, and the excess quantity that cannot be divided is called the remainder.
Set up the division problem in long division format:
Divide 11 by 8. Place this digit in the quotient on top of the division symbol:
Multiply the newest quotient digit (1) by the divisor 8:
Subtract 8 from 11:
Bring down the next dividend:
Divide 32 by 8. Place this in the digit in the quotient on top of the division symbol:
Subtract 32 from 32:
