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







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
       
    0


Visually, what is our result? We have six object and want to divide them into two even groups:
