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
Divide dividend 6 by divisor
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
The a remainder of the division is 6 - 6 = 0.
(Divisor times Quotient) + Remainder = Dividend
(2 × 3) + 0 = 6.
Visually, what is our result? We have six object and want to divide them into two
