How to divide a 4-digit number by a 1-digit number?
Step 1: Write the dividend (the number being divided) and divisor (the number we’re dividing by) in the long division format, with the dividend inside the division bracket and the divisor outside the division bracket.
Step 2: Work on the dividend from left to right. Determine how many times the divisor can go into the first digit of the dividend without exceeding it. (Use the multiplication facts to help you).
Step 3: If the divisor is larger than the first digit, divide the first two digits of the dividend by the divisor.
Step 4: Write the quotient above the dividend.
Step 5: Multiply the quotient by the divisor to get the product. Write the product beneath the dividend.
Step 6: Subtract the product from the dividend.
Step 7: Bring down the next digit.
Step 8: Repeat the process until the dividend is less than the divisor.
Step 9: The final answer is the quotient plus any remainder (if there is one).
Step 10: Check your quotient and remainder by using multiplication and addition. Quotient × Divisor + Remainder = Dividend.
