Long Division

Additional Resources:

In this section, we continue to learn about division with whole numbers. Specifically, we will be reviewing the process of long division. Long division is extremely useful when trying to divide large multi-digit whole numbers. Long division breaks the division process down into a series of smaller manageable steps. With this process, we are able to attack the dividend one digit at a time. To do this, we follow the DMSBR method:
  1. Divide
  2. Multiply
  3. Subtract
  4. Bring Down
  5. Repeat or Remainder
We will learn how to perform long division with two different scenarios: the first occurs when we do not have a remainder. The second occurs when we do have a remainder.
