This is only a procedure to calculate the quotient: Code:

28.00000 ÷ 322 = 0.08695....
0 ↓↓↓ 0 * 322
---↓↓↓
280↓↓
0↓↓ 0 * 322

2800↓
2576↓ 8 * 322

2240
1932 6 * 322

308

You only calculate the next digit, multiply this digit number by the divisor and subtract this result. Add the next digit from above and repeat this process.

I hope this helps a little bit. Probably you'll find better explanations if you take a math book of the second class.
