## Learn How To Solve Simple Division Problems

To learn the steps in dividing two numbers, let's pick a problem and solve it step by step. Let's start with the example below:

### Problem: Divide Two Positive Integer Numbers

+2√+6

+2√+6

2√6

2√6

Divide dividend 6 by divisor 2.

The divisor divides evenly in to the dividend

which equals 6 ÷ 2 = 3.

Put the division result 3 on the answer line.

Subtract 3 x 2 = 6 from the dividend value 6.

The a remainder of the division is 6 - 6 = 0.

Math check:

(Divisor times Quotient) + Remainder = Dividend

(2 × 3) + 0 = 6.

`3`

2√6

-6

2√6

-6
