Q:

How can I show my answer to 2 divided by 28

Accepted Solution

A:
              14              2⟌28                - 2                    08                - 8                    0  Step 1: Start by setting it up with the divisor 2 on the left side and the dividend 28 on the right side Step 2: The divisor (2) goes into the first digit of the dividend (2), 1 time(s). Therefore, put 1 on top Step 3: Multiply the divisor by the result in the previous step (2 x 1 = 2) and write that answer below the dividendStep 4: Subtract the result in the previous step from the first digit of the dividend (2 - 2 = 0) Step 5: Move down the 2nd digit of the dividend (8) Step 6: The divisor (2) goes into the bottom number (8), 4 time(s). Therefore, put 4 on topStep 7: Multiply the divisor by the result in the previous step (2 x 4 = 8) and write that answer at the bottom\Step 8: Subtract the result in the previous step from the number written above it. (8 - 8 = 0) and write the answer at the bottomYou are done, because there are no more digits to move down from the dividend. The answer is the top number and the remainder is the bottom number. Therefore, the answer to 28 divided by 2 calculated using Long Division is: 14
