division problem work out the long way
how do you solve this problem the long way137/6?
I worked this all out in Word, did a Print Screen and saved it in Paint, but could not paste either in here, so, since others have already solved the problem for you, the best I can do is offer you a way to remember the steps for doing long division: DMSCBR - Divde, Multiply, Subtract, Check, Bring down, Repeat, and describe what you do in each step using this problem as an example:
Step 1 - DIVIDE: Divide the first number in the dividend (the 1 in 132, in this case), by the divisor (6, in this case). If the divsor can't go into the dividend (and 6 can not go into 1) add the next digit in the dividend (in this case, you put the 3 in 132 with the 1 and get 13. 6 does go into 13, so you can proceed).
Step 2 - MULTIPLY: Multiply the answer to the previous division problem by the divisor (in this case, it would be 2 x 6).
Step 3 - SUBTRACT: Subtract the product from the previous step (in this case, 12) from the number(s) in your dividend you used to do step 1 (in this case, 13. So with this problem you'd do 13 - 12, which equals 1).
Step 4 - CHECK. Make sure your difference (the answer from the subtraction in Step 3, 1 in this case) is smaller than your divisor. If it is, you can proceed with step 5. If not, you have to check your subtraction, then your multiplaction, then your division uintil you find out where you went wrong. In this problem 1< 6, so you can go on.
Step 5 - BRING DOWN. Bring down the next unused number in your dividend (in this case, you'd bring down the 2 in 132. When you put it next to the 1 from step 3, you get 12 again).
Step 6 - REPEAT. In this case, "repeat" means go back to step 1 and do the steps in order until there are no numbers left in your dividend to use in Step 1. You might have a remainder, you might not. In this problem, 132/6, there is no remainder. (If you are NOT USING remainders in long division and are using decimals instead, you would put a decimal point after the last number in your dvidend, then start writing zeroes after it and repeated the steps again, DMSCBR, until you get a 0 after you subtract in step 3, or until you notice a repeating pattern in your decimals such as .93939393 ....)
Now, what's the mnemonic devise - the easy way - to remember what the letters are for each step and what they stand for? Substitute the following phrase. The first letter of each of the words in the phrase is one of the letters in DMSCBR: Drive My Silly Car Back 'Round. (D rive M y S illy C ar B ack 'R ound. DMSCBR. Divide, Multiply, Subtract, Check, Bring down, Repeat.)
