Long Division

As we know that the division is to distribute a given value or quantity into groups having equal values. In long division, values at the individual place (Thousands, Hundreds, Tens, Ones) are dividend one at a time starting with the highest place.

Division by One-Digit Divisor

1. Divide 27 by 9

Solution:

Let us divide.

Step I: Write 27 inside the bracket and 9 on the left side of the bracket.

Step II: Start division from left to right, that is, divide 2 by 9. Since, we cannot divide 2 by 9 so, we will divide 27 by 9.

Step III: Recall the table of 9.

9 × 3 = 27

Now, write 3 in the quotient and subtract 27 from 27. The result is 0.

Thus, 27 ÷ 9 = 3

2. Divide 92 by 4

Solution:

Let us divide.

Step I: Write 92 inside the bracket and 4 on the left side of the bracket.

Step II: Start division from left to right, that is, divide 9 tens by 4.

4 × 2 = 8

4 × 3 = 12

12 tens is bigger than 9 tens, so we take 4 × 2 = 8 tens.

Step III: Write 2 in the quotient.

Step IV: Subtract 8 from 9 and get 1 as remainder.

Step V: Bring down 2 from ones place and write it to the right of 1.

12 is the new dividend.

Step VI: Write 3 in the quotient and subtract 12 from 12. The result is 0.

Thus, 92÷4 = 23

3. Find the quotient and remainder of 649 ÷ 9.

Solution:

Step I: We start dividing the hundreds first. Since 6 hundreds cannot be divided into 9 groups of hundreds, the quotient at hundreds column is zero.

Step II: 6 Hundreds are now changed into 60 tens and added to 4 tens, making 64 tens.

Step III: 64 tens give 9 groups of 7 tens each and 1 ten is left over.

Step IV: 1 ten give 10 ones, 10 ones + 9 ones = 19 ones

Step V: 19 ones can be put into 2 groups of 9 and 1 one is left over.

4. Divide 2698 by 21.

Solution:

Recall the process of long division.

Step I: 2 thousands cannot be divided into 21 groups of thousand. So, 0 is placed as quotient in the thousands column.

Step II: 2 thousands give 20 hundreds.

20 hundreds + 6 hundreds give 26 hundreds. 26 hundreds make 1 group of 21 hundreds. 5 hundreds are left.

Step III: 5 hundreds give 50 tens.

Long Division by Two-Digit Divisors

q = 128; r = 10

So, 50 tens + 9 tens = 59 tens

59 tens are to be divided into 21 groups of tens

59 tens ÷ 21 makes 2 groups with 17 tens left.

2 is placed in the quotient in the tens column.

Step IV: 17 tens = 170 ones

170 ones + 8 ones = 178 ones

178 ones ÷ 21 makes 8 groups with 10 ones left.

Thus, in division of 2,698 by 21, we get 128 as quotient and 10 as remainder.


Word Problems on Long Division:

To solve any word problem, we need to read each word carefully and select numbers carefully from the question to solve it.

5. If 60 cookies to be put in 5 packets, how many cookies will be packed in one packet?

Solution:

Number of cookies = 60 cookies

Equally distributed in 5 packets

Number of cookies in one packet = 60 ÷ 5
