The method followed in binary division is also similar to that adopted in decimal system. However, in the case of binary numbers, the operation is simpler because the quotient can have either 1 or 0 depending upon the divisor.
The table for binary division is
  1  0 
1  1  Meaning less 
0  0  Meaning less 
The binary division operation is illustrated by the following examples:
Evaluate:
(i) 11001 ÷ 101
Solution:
101) 11001 (101
Hence the quotient is 101
(ii) 11101.01 ÷ 1100
Solution:
1100) 11101.01 (10.0111
Hence the quotient is 10.0111
(iii) 10110.1 ÷ 1101
Solution:
1101) 10110.1 (1.101
Thus the quotient is 1.101 upto 3 places of binary point and the remainder is 1.011.
(iv) 101.11 ÷ 111
Solution:
111) 101.11 (0.11
Thus the quotient is 0.11 upto 2 places of binary point and the remainder is 0.1.
