Let me do 1560 divided by 7.

Thus we have,

First 7 does not go into 1, we move to the next digits, "15"

It goes into 15 twice.

Now multiply by 2 and subtract from first two digits.

Code:

1560 : 7 = 2
-14
----
1

Bring down the other digits,

Code:

1560 : 7 = 2
-14
----
160

Do the same thing 7 does not go into 1 move to next digits. "16" It goes in twice.

Code:

1560 : 7 = 22
-14
---
160
-14
----
20

Same thing move other to "20" it goes in 2.

Code:

1560 : 7 = 222
-14
----
160
-14
---
20
-14
---
6

Since you cannot do anything with 6 that is the remainder.

Thus the answer is 222 Remanider 6.
