Division of Whole Numbers

Module by: Wade Ellis, Denny Burzynski. E-mail the authorsEdited By: Math Editors

Summary: This module is from Fundamentals of Mathematics by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. This module discusses how to divide whole numbers. By the end of the module students should be able to be able to divide a whole number by a single or multiple digit divisor and interpret a calculator statement that a division results in a remainder.

Division with a Single Digit Divisor

Our experience with multiplication of whole numbers allows us to perform such divisions as 75÷575÷5 size 12{"75" div 5} {}. We perform the division by performing the corresponding multiplication, 5×Q=755×Q=75 size 12{5 times Q="75"} {}. Each division we considered in (Reference) had a one-digit quotient. Now we will consider divisions in which the quotient may consist of two or more digits. For example, 75÷575÷5 size 12{"75" div 5} {}.

Let's examine the division 75÷575÷5 size 12{"75" div 5} {}. We are asked to determine how many 5's are contained in 75. We'll approach the problem in the following way.

  1. Make an educated guess based on experience with multiplication.
  2. Find how close the estimate is by multiplying the estimate by 5.
  3. If the product obtained in step 2 is less than 75, find out how much less by subtracting it from 75.
  4. If the product obtained in step 2 is greater than 75, decrease the estimate until the product is less than 75. Decreasing the estimate makes sense because we do not wish to exceed 75.

We can suggest from this discussion that the process of division consists of

The Four Steps in Division

  1. an educated guess
  2. a multiplication
  3. a subtraction
  4. bringing down the next digit (if necessary)

The educated guess can be made by determining how many times the divisor is contained in the dividend by using only one or two digits of the dividend.

Sample Set A

Example 1

Find 75÷575÷5 size 12{"75" div 5} {}.

5 75 5 75 Rewrite the problem using a division bracket.

10 5 75 10 5 75
Make an educated guess by noting that one 5 is contained in 75 at most 10 times.
Since 7 is the tens digit, we estimate that 5 goes into 75 at most 10 times.

10 5 75 - 50 ̲ 25 10 5 75 - 50 ̲ 25
Now determine how close the estimate is.
10 fives is 10×5=5010×5=50 size 12{"10" times 5="50"} {}. Subtract 50 from 75.
Estimate the number of 5's in 25.
There are exactly 5 fives in 25.

5 10 10 fives + 5 fives = 15 fives. There are 15 fives contained in 75. 5 75 - 50 ̲ 25 - 25 ̲ 0 5 10 10 fives + 5 fives = 15 fives. There are 15 fives contained in 75. 5 75 - 50 ̲ 25 - 25 ̲ 0

Check: Is 75 equal to 15 times 5? Yes.

Thus, 75÷5=1575÷5=15 size 12{"75" div 5="15"} {}.

The notation in this division can be shortened by writing.

15 5 75 - 5↓ ̲ 25 - 25 ̲ 0 15 5 75 - 5↓ ̲ 25 - 25 ̲ 0
Divide: 5 goes into 7 at most 1 time. Multiply: 1 × 5 = 5. Write 5 below 7. Subtract: 7 - 5 = 2. Bring down the 5. Divide: 5 goes into 7 at most 1 time. Multiply: 1 × 5 = 5. Write 5 below 7. Subtract: 7 - 5 = 2. Bring down the 5. Divide: 5 goes into 25 exactly 5 times. Multiply: 5 × 5 = 25. Write 25 below 25. Subtract: 25 - 25 = 0. Divide: 5 goes into 25 exactly 5 times. Multiply: 5 × 5 = 25. Write 25 below 25. Subtract: 25 - 25 = 0.

Example 2

Find 4,944÷84,944÷8 size 12{4,"944" div 8} {}.

8 4944 8 4944
Rewrite the problem using a division bracket.

600 8 4944 - 4800 ̲ 144 600 8 4944 - 4800 ̲ 144
8 goes into 49 at most 6 times, and 9 is in the hundreds column. We'll guess 600.
Then, 8×600=48008×600=4800 size 12{8 times "600"="4800"} {}.

10 600 8 4944 - 4800 ̲ 144 -   80 ̲ 64 10 600 8 4944 - 4800 ̲ 144 -   80 ̲ 64
8 goes into 14 at most 1 time, and 4 is in the tens column. We'll guess 10.

8 10 600 8 4944 - 4800 ̲ 144 -   80 ̲ 64 - 64 ̲ 0 8 10 600 8 4944 - 4800 ̲ 144 -   80 ̲ 64 - 64 ̲ 0

8 goes into 64 exactly 8 times.
600 eights + 10 eights + 8 eights = 618 eights.

Check: Is 4944 equal to 8 times 18? Yes.

Thus, 4,944÷8=6184,944÷8=618 size 12{4,"944" div 8="618"} {}.

As in the first problem, the notation in this division can be shortened by eliminating the subtraction signs and the zeros in each educated guess.

Long division. 4944 divided by 8. After each educated guess, the digit to the right is brought down to the next line.
Divide: 8 goes into 49 at most 6 times. Multiply: 6 × 8 = 48. Write 48 below 49. Subtract: 49 - 48 = 1. Bring down the 4. Divide: 8 goes into 49 at most 6 times. Multiply: 6 × 8 = 48. Write 48 below 49. Subtract: 49 - 48 = 1. Bring down the 4. Divide: 8 goes into 14 at most 1 time. Multiply: 1 × 8 = 8. Write 8 below 14. Subtract: 14 - 8 = 6. Bring down the 4. Divide: 8 goes into 14 at most 1 time. Multiply: 1 × 8 = 8. Write 8 below 14. Subtract: 14 - 8 = 6. Bring down the 4. Divide: 8 goes into 64 exactly 8 times. Multiply: 8 × 8 = 64. Write 64 below 64. Subtract: 64 - 64 = 0. Divide: 8 goes into 64 exactly 8 times. Multiply: 8 × 8 = 64. Write 64 below 64. Subtract: 64 - 64 = 0.

Note:

Not all divisions end in zero. We will examine such divisions in a subsequent subsection.

Division with a Multiple Digit Divisor

The process of division also works when the divisor consists of two or more digits. We now make educated guesses using the first digit of the divisor and one or two digits of the dividend.

Sample Set B

Example 3

Find 2,232÷362,232÷36 size 12{2,"232" div "36"} {}.

36 2232 36 2232

Use the first digit of the divisor and the first two digits of the dividend to make the educated guess.

3 goes into 22 at most 7 times.

Try 7: 7×36=2527×36=252 size 12{7 times "36"="252"} {} which is greater than 223. Reduce the estimate.

Try 6: 6×36=2166×36=216 size 12{6 times "36"="216"} {} which is less than 223.

The first step of a long division problem. 2232 divided by 36. 36 goes into 223 approximately 6 times, with a remainder of 7. The ones digit of 2232 is then brought down to adjoin the 7. Multiply: 6 × 36 = 216. Write 216 below 223. Subtract: 223 - 216 = 7. Bring down the 2. Multiply: 6 × 36 = 216. Write 216 below 223. Subtract: 223 - 216 = 7. Bring down the 2.

Divide 3 into 7 to estimate the number of times 36 goes into 72. The 3 goes into 7 at most 2 times.

Try 2: 2×36=722×36=72 size 12{2 times "36"="72"} {}.

Long division. 2232 divided by 36. 36 goes into 223 approximately 6 times, with a remainder of 7. The ones digit of 2232 is then brought down to adjoin the 7. 36 goes into 72 exactly twice, leaving a remainder of 0.

Check: Is 2232 equal to 36 time 62? Yes.

Thus, 2,232÷36=622,232÷36=62 size 12{2,"232" div "36"="62"} {}.

Example 4

Find 2,417,228÷8022,417,228÷802 size 12{2,"417","228" div "802"} {}.

802 2417228 802 2417228

First, the educated guess: 24÷8=324÷8=3 size 12{"24" div 8=3} {}. Then 3×802=24063×802=2406 size 12{3 times "802"="2406"} {}, which is less than 2417. Use 3 as the guess. Since 3×802=24063×802=2406 size 12{3 times "802"="2406"} {}, and 2406 has four digits, place the 3 above the fourth digit of the dividend.

The first step of a long division problem. 2417228 divided by 802. 802 goes into 2417 approximately 3 times, with a remainder of 11. The hundreds digit of 2417228 is then brought down to adjoin the 11.
Subtract: 2417 - 2406 = 11.
Bring down the 2.

The divisor 802 goes into 112 at most 0 times. Use 0.

The second step of a long division problem. 802 goes into 112 0 times, so a zero is placed above, and the next digit is brought down.
Multiply: 0 × 802 = 0. Subtract: 112 - 0 = 112. Bring down the 2. Multiply: 0 × 802 = 0. Subtract: 112 - 0 = 112. Bring down the 2.

The 8 goes into 11 at most 1 time, and 1×802=8021×802=802 size 12{1 times "802"="802"} {}, which is less than 1122. Try 1.

The third step of a long division problem. 802 goes into 1122 once, so a 1 is placed above and the ones digit is brought down.
Subtract 1122-802 = 320 1122-802=320
Bring down the 8.

8 goes into 32 at most 4 times.

4×802=32084×802=3208 size 12{4 times "802"="3208"} {}.

Use 4.

The third step of a long division problem. 2417228 divided by 802. 802 goes into 2417 approximately 3 times, with a remainder of 11. The hundreds digit of 2417228 is then brought down to adjoin the 11. 802 goes into 112 0 times, so a zero is placed above, and the next digit is brought down. 802 goes into 1122 once, so a 1 is placed above and the ones digit is brought down. 802 goes into 3208 4 times, leaving a remainder of 0.

Check: Is 2417228 equal to 3014 times 802? Yes.

Thus, 2,417,228÷802=3,0142,417,228÷802=3,014 size 12{2,"417","228" div "802"=3,"014"} {}.

Division with a Remainder

We might wonder how many times 4 is contained in 10. Repeated subtraction yields

10 -   4 ̲ 6 - 4 ̲ 2 10 -   4 ̲ 6 - 4 ̲ 2

Since the remainder is less than 4, we stop the subtraction. Thus, 4 goes into 10 two times with 2 remaining. We can write this as a division as follows.

2 4 10 -   8 ̲ 2 2 4 10 -   8 ̲ 2
Divide: 4 goes into 10 at most 2 times. Multiply: 2 × 4 = 8. Write 8 below 0. Subtract: 10 - 8 = 2. Divide: 4 goes into 10 at most 2 times. Multiply: 2 × 4 = 8. Write 8 below 0. Subtract: 10 - 8 = 2.

Since 4 does not divide into 2 (the remainder is less than the divisor) and there are no digits to bring down to continue the process, we are done. We write

2R2 4    10 - 8 ̲ 2 2R2 4    10 - 8 ̲ 2 or 10÷4=2R22 with remainder 210÷4=2R22 with remainder 2

Sample Set C

Example 5

Find 85÷385÷3 size 12{"85" div 3} {}.

Long division. 85 divided by 3. 3 goes into 8 twice, with a remainder of 2. The ones digit is then brought down. 3 goes into 25 8 times, with a remainder of 1.
Divide: 3 goes into 8 at most 2 times. Multiply: 2 × 3 = 6. Write 6 below 8. Subtract: 8 - 6 = 2. Bring down the 5. Divide: 3 goes into 8 at most 2 times. Multiply: 2 × 3 = 6. Write 6 below 8. Subtract: 8 - 6 = 2. Bring down the 5. Divide: 3 goes into 25 at most 8 times. Multiply: 3 × 8 = 24. Write 24 below 25. Subtract: 25 - 24 = 1. Divide: 3 goes into 25 at most 8 times. Multiply: 3 × 8 = 24. Write 24 below 25. Subtract: 25 - 24 = 1.

There are no more digits to bring down to continue the process. We are done. One is the remainder.

Check: Multiply 28 and 3, then add 1.

28 ×   3 ̲ 84 +   1 ̲ 85 28 ×   3 ̲ 84 +   1 ̲ 85

Thus, 85÷3=28R185÷3=28R1 size 12{"85" div 3="28"`R1} {}.

Example 6

Find 726÷23726÷23 size 12{"726" div "23"} {}.

Long division. 726 divided by 23. 23 goes into 72 three times, with a remainder of 3. The ones digit is then brought down. 23 goes into 36 once, with a remainder of 13.

Check: Multiply 31 by 23, then add 13.

31 times 23 equals 713. 713 plus 13 equals 726.

Thus, 726÷23=31R13726÷23=31R13 size 12{"726" div "23"="31"````R"13"} {}.

Calculators

The calculator can be useful for finding quotients with single and multiple digit divisors. If, however, the division should result in a remainder, the calculator is unable to provide us with the particular value of the remainder. Also, some calculators (most nonscientific) are unable to perform divisions in which one of the numbers has more than eight digits.

Sample Set D

Use a calculator to perform each division.

Example 7

328 ÷ 8 328 ÷ 8 size 12{"328" div 8} {}

Table 1
Type 328
Press ÷
Type 8
Press =

The display now reads 41.

Example 8

53 , 136 ÷ 82 53 , 136 ÷ 82 size 12{"53","136" div "82"} {}

Table 2
Type 53136
Press ÷
Type 82
Press =

The display now reads 648.

Example 9

730 , 019 , 001 ÷ 326 730 , 019 , 001 ÷ 326 size 12{"730","019","001" div "326"} {}

We first try to enter 730,019,001 but find that we can only enter 73001900. If our calculator has only an eight-digit display (as most nonscientific calculators do), we will be unable to use the calculator to perform this division.

Example 10

3727 ÷ 49 3727 ÷ 49 size 12{"3727" div "49"} {}

Table 3
Type 3727
Press ÷
Type 49
Press =

The display now reads 76.061224.

This number is an example of a decimal number (see (Reference)). When a decimal number results in a calculator division, we can conclude that the division produces a remainder.

Solution

Since the dividend has more than eight digits, this division cannot be performed on most nonscientific calculators. On others, the answer is 415,026,137.4

Exercise 18

4,558÷674,558÷67 size 12{4,"558" div "57"} {}

Solution

This division results in 68.02985075, a decimal number, and therefore, we cannot, at this time, find the value of the remainder. Later, we will discuss decimal numbers.
