Problem 1Originally Posted bynogoodatmaths

Divide 86 by 5:

First see how many times 5 goes into 8 that is one thus the answer starts off as:

86 divided by 5 = 1,

then multiply the divisor which is 5 by the number you got which is 1,

86

5

Now subtract,

36.

Thus the answer thus far looks like,

86 divided by 5= 1

36

What you do is is divide 36 by 5, since 5 does not go into 3 move to the next digit, thus how many times 5 goes into 36 answer 7, thus

86 divided by 5=17

36

Now mutiply as in the beginning by 7 the divisor and subtract thus

36

-35

=1, since 5 cannot further go into 1 the remaining (remainder is 1) thus,

86 divided by 5= 17 R1
