    Are you familiar with your multiplication tables? Are you doing long division? One easy way to look at division is that it is reverse multiplication. Taking 8 as and example of a base we can look at its tables ...

    8x1=8
    8x2=16
    8x3=24
    8x4=32
    8x5=40
    8x6=48
    8x7=56
    8x8=64
    8x9=72

    So looking at this table 16 divided by 8 is 2.

    64 divided by 8 is 8 and so on and so forth. Apply your multiplication tables like this to get a good feel of things. This is of course simple division. If you need more help post some of your problems

    I'll try to illustrate with text as best I can.

    ___10.760
    13|144
    -13
    100
    -91
    90
    -78
    12... and so on and so forth

    You drop reminders and continue on. Here is a webpage, I found that illustrates the concepts a bit better

    Well, either use the synthetic algorithm or long division... Your post is kind of ambiguous.
