Hello guys, I’ve got another problem.

I’m dividing 575 by 23 using the long division method.

25

23/575

46

115

575

-460

So, I’ll tell you how I worked this out in case it was a problem with my working out.

I asked myself the following, how many times does 23 go into 5 it does not, therefore how many times does 23 go into 57, it goes in 2 times. So, I put the 2 on top of the 7.

Now, I’ve got to ask myself, 2 x 23 = 46 and then I put the 46 under the 23 and subtract 57 – 46 = 11, so I put 11 under the 46.

GO RUNNING

Then I bring the 5 down next to the 11 making 115.

I then ask myself how many times 23 goes into 115 well it goes in exactly 5 times. So I put the 5 on the answer column next to the 2.

I then do 25 x 23 = 575 and now the point where am stuck, I’ve got 115 – 575 = -460.

So the answer is 25 remainder -460?

Please can somebody help me out here?
