Then multiply the divisor by the last answer (15x7 = 105)

(the "6").

and subtract (106 - 105 = 1).

There are no more unused digits in the dividend. If there

were, you would continue the above procedures until all of

the digits of the dividend have been used.

NOTE: Often the initial zero (or zeros) in the quotient is not

written. This example shows the zero in the quotient to help

make the process clearer. Also, when the numbers contain

commas, you may prefer to delete the commas when

setting up the division problem.

The answer to how many 15's are in 406 is 27, with 1 left over. The

remainder may be written as 27r1. This means "27 with a remainder of

l." More often, the remainder is written as a fraction. The top number of

the fraction is the remainder and the bottom number is the divisor (see

15 can be written as

Frame 1-7). Therefore, the answer to 406

.

Solution to

If you wanted to express the answer in decimal form rather than using a

Frame 1-23

fraction, put a decimal point after the last digit in the dividend (after the

"6"), add zeros to the right of the decimal point (they do not change the

27 1/15

value of the dividend), and keep dividing.

NOTE: Don't forget to put a decimal point in the quotient directly above

the decimal point in the dividend.

Solve the problem so that the quotient is in decimal form instead of

"remainder" or "fraction" form. The decimals and the first zero have

already been placed. This procedure is discussed in more detail in

Lesson 3 (Decimals).
