Divide numbers using long division

This video focuses on how to do long division. She starts by dividing 1548 by 26, going incrementally between each value. She first take 26 into the first three numbers of 1548 (154) and gets 5, then takes the remainder of 24 (154-130) and brings down the 8 to get 248. She then divides 248 by 26 to get 9 with a remainder of 14. She then goes into some detail as to how to extract the decimal from the remainder by continuing the long division and adding zeros to the end of the divisor. At the end of the video she shows that 1548 divided by 26 is in fact, 59.5384615.
