How To: Divide bigger numbers

Divide bigger numbers

In this video, we learn how to divide bigger numbers. As an example, let's say you were dividing 843 by 13. To make this easier, write down the times tables for 13 down and keep adding up. After you do this, see how many times 13 goes into 84. Your table will tell you how many times it goes into the larger number. Thirteen will go into 84 six times, so write six on the top line above the four, then subtract 78 from 84 and write a 6 next to the 4. Now, work out the remainder and when finished, do reverse math to see if you were correct!
