Long Division 2

Long Division is simply Short Division with the subtracting part of the process written out formally. Here is 245 ÷ 7 using both methods:

7 into 24 goes 3 with 3 left over

7 into 35 goes 5

7 into 24 goes 3 times

3 x 7 is 21

24 - 21 is 3

bring down the 5; now do it again with the new number

7 into 35 goes 5 times

5 x 7 = 35

35 - 35 is 0

finished!

This might look complicated for a simple division but we need to see it used on a harder task.
