     0.194
36|7.00000

     36                    36 cannot go into 7 so you need to add the 0 after the decimal. Decimal floats up to top.

     340                 36 goes into 70, 1 time . Put 1 on top after decimal.  Subtract 70-36 to get 34.

     324                 36 does not go into 34. Bring down the next zero. Try 36 x 9 (= 324). Put 9 on top. 

       160                Subtract. Bring down the next zero

       144                Try 36 x 4 (= 144). Put 4 on top.            

         160             Subtract. Bring down the next zero

         144           It is 36 x 4 again and will continue to be 4 each time you subtract and

           160         bring down the zero.

So the answer is 0.194 with a bar over the 4 to indicate the 4 repeats .
