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

**Hence the quotient is 101**

**(ii) 11101.01 ****÷**** 1100**

** **

**Solution:**

10101

0010

1100

**Hence the quotient is 10.0111**

**(iii) 10110.1 ****÷ ****1101**** **

** **

**Solution:**

10011

11000

1011

**Thus the quotient is 1.101 upto 3 places of binary point and
the remainder is 1.011.**

**(iv)**** 101.11 ****÷ ****111**

** **

**Solution:**

10 01

10

**Thus the quotient is 0.11 upto 2 places of binary point and
the remainder is 0.1.**
