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 2 doesn't go
 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.
