Long Division

Learn all about dividing numbers using long division in this free lesson, which includes practice problems.

Problems with remainders

In Introduction to Division, you learned that some numbers can't be equally divided. When that happens, there will be an amount left over. This is called a remainder. For instance, let's say you want to share 8 treats equally among your 3 dogs. The answer is that each dog would get two treats with a remainder of two.

The remainder is written as part of the quotient: 8 / 3 = 2 r2.

Long division problems can have remainders too. Watch the slideshow to see how.
