Vocabulary Words for the parts of the problem
quotient remainder divisor dividend product

Step One -- Divide Look at the first two digits of the dividend.
Decide how many times the divisor can go into the dividend without going over. “Twenty-three can be divided into two equal groups of eight with some left over.” Think: How many times can 8 go into 23 without going over? 2 8 235

Step Two – Multiply Multiply the divisor by the quotient.
Write your answer under the dividend. Think: 2 x 8 = 16 2 8 235 16

Step Three – Subtract Subtract the product from the dividend.
Notice you still have a five in the dividend. Think: 23 – 16 = 7 2 16 7

Step Four – Bring Down Bring the five down next to the seven. 2
Repeat steps 1 – 3. 2 16 75

Step One -- Divide Decide how many times the divisor can go into the new number without going over. “Seventy-five can be divided into nine equal groups of eight with some left over.” Think: How many times can 8 go into 75 without going over? 2 8 235 16 75

Step Two – Multiply Multiply the divisor by the new quotient.
Write your answer under the dividend. Think: 9 x 8 = 72 29 8 235 16 75 72

Step Three – Subtract Subtract the product from the previous answer.
There is nothing more to bring down. Your answer becomes the remainder. Think: 9 x 8 = 72 29 R 3 8 235 16 75 72 3

Review the four steps Dirty – divide the dividend by the divisor.
Monkeys – multiply the quotient by the divisor and write the answer under the dividend. Smell – subtract the product from the dividend. Bad – bring down the next part of the dividend and repeat steps 1 – 3.
