Strategy For Dividing Really Big Numbers
Say you have to divide 5327 by 98. The first thing to do is write out the 98 times table.
98 x 1 = 98
This makes it easier to see what the quotient is. Then you divide 532 by 98. As you can see it divides 5 times with 42 remainder.
Then you carry down the 7 and divide 427 by 98. This time it divides 4 times with 35 remainder.
The quotient is 54 and the remainder is 35.
