Long division….121 divided by 15

 

Long Division.

1. Draw a bus stop and put 121 inside it.
2. Put 15 outside of it.
3. There are no 15’s in 1 so you put a zero above the 1.
4. There are no 15’s in 12 so you put a zero above the 2.
5. Now you find out how many 15’s go into 121.
6. There are 8, 15’s in 121 which is a total of 120.
7. So you now write 120 under 121.
8. Take away 120 from 121 and you get1
9. Put a decimal point after the 1 in the bus stop.
10. Bring down a zero.
11. Can 15 go into 10. No, so you put a zero after the decimal point in the answer.
12. Bring down another zero.
13. Work out how many 15’s go into 100….There are 6.
14. Write the 6 in the answer and take away 90 from 100.
15. Bring down another zero and repeat.
16. The answer is 8.0666 repeating.

The answer is 8.0666 repeating.
