What is a Long Division?

Long division is an algorithm which breaks down an integer division into a series of easy steps such that they can be performed by hand.

In general, the outcome of this mathematical operation is a quotient and a remainder.

No matter the division operator “:”, (colon), “/” (division slash division sign) or “÷” (obelus), the division process is the same.

Long Division Steps

Every long division comprises of five steps:
  1. Take the first digit of the dividend from the left. If this digit is greater than or equal to the divisor proceed with step 2. Else, note the remainder.
  2. Divide the digit by the divisor and write the result on top as the quotient.
  3. Subtract the result multiplied by the divisor from the digit and write the difference below.
  4. Bring down the next digit in sequence of the dividend.
  5. Repeat the same process until there are no more digits to bring down. If there there is still one or more  dividend digits left over then note it as remainder. Note the quotient above the top division bar.

You can always verify the division answer using the division formula: Dividend = (Divisor × Quotient) + Remainder.

Long Division Examples

Example 1: 514 ÷ 13

For the division sentence 514 ÷ 13 = 39 R 7
  • 514 is the dividend
  • 13 is the divisor
  • 39 is the quotient part of the answer
  • 7 is the remainder part of the answer
The image below depicts the steps.

Example 2: 1001 ÷ 4

  • 1001 is the dividend
  • 4 is the divisor
  • 250 is the quotient part of the answer
  • 1 is the remainder part of the answer
The image below depicts the steps.

Example 3: 200 ÷ 40

  • 200 is the dividend
  • 40 is the divisor
  • 5 is the quotient part of the answer
  • 0 is the remainder part of the answer
The image below depicts the steps.

We look forward to your comments and everything else you might have.

Long Division Remainder

If a long division does not work out to an integer (whole number), the number left over is called the remainder.

The absence of a remainder is the same as remainder = 0, in all cases.

Actually, our calculator is a long division calculator with remainders.

Long Division Symbol

The long division symbol is called tableau: the divisor (denominator) is separated from the dividend by a vertical bar and the dividend (nominator) is separated from the quotient by a vinculum (a horizontal line drawn over the top of the dividend).

Instead of a vertical bar (|), a right parenthesis can be used.

The tableau is also called division bracket.

In the next section we are going to discuss the frequently asked questions.

Summary

The long division method is a standard division algorithm involving 5 steps.

Like all regular division problems, the nominator (dividend) is divided by the divisor (denominator) which produces a quotient and sometimes additionally a remainder.

The general form of a long division equation is “Dividend = Divisor × Quotient + Remainder”.
