# Division Calculator

Understanding **basic **mathematical **operations **is not difficult even for a **school** student. But it can be harder when you are dealing with **problems** related to division, **especially** long division. The **reason **is many students find it difficult to **separate **a bigger **number **into parts equal to a **smaller** number.

Are you **one **of those **students**? You should use this long-**division calculator.** This online **handy **tool has been **designed **to make the **division **process simple and **accurate**. You can use this maths calculator easily by following a **few **simple steps. Let’s read about this **calculator **and its works.

## What is division?

In **Mathematics,** a division is a **process **of separating a **bigger **number into **small **parts. It is one of the **basic** mathematical **operations **that every **student **has to learn **regardless **of their **level **of **education**.

There are **two **main **components **of division that we call **divisor **and dividend. The **dividend **is the number that has to **be **divided by a smaller **number**. On the other **side**, the number that will **divide **the dividend will be called the divisor. **For example**, if “**36**” is divided by “**2**”, then **36 **will be called a dividend and **2 **will be called a divisor

## What is a long division?

It is a **specific **type of division in which a **very **big number is divided **step **by **step **by a smaller number or the **prime **number. In Long Division, you can’t divide the **number **in a single step but the **process **will be **completed **in multiple steps.

You have to **start **dividing the number by the **smallest **prime number to get **another **dividend. The **process **will keep going **unless **you got a number **less **than the divisor as the **remainder **of the division or you have got “**0**” as the remainder

### How to perform long division?

Performing long **division **is not difficult if you know the **steps**. Here we have enlisted some of **those **steps for your **understanding**.

- Divide the dividend by a divisor
- It will give a remainder as a result.
- Check if the remainder is bigger than the divisor, and divide it again.
- Keep doing this unless you got the remainder less than a divisor or have divided the dividend completely

You may have an idea of how to perform long division now. But we have also solved an example here to let you clarify your doubts.

**Example 1:**

Find the quotient and remainder when 235 is divided by 6.

**Solution:**

First of **all**, we have to divide the first **two **digits of the dividend by **6**. As we know, we can divide it by multiplying **3 **by **6 **which comes to **18 **which is lesser than **23 **(the first two digits of the **number**). As the remainder, we get **5 **which will be **combined **with the third **digit **of the number. So, it comes out to be **55 **which will be again divided by **6**. After this division, we get the following answers.

= 235/6

Quotient = 39

Remainder =1
