im just looking for a way to work out division and showing how you worked it out

example (this is adding by the way)

468
+
346
----------
814
----------
1 1
6. I would type it out, but seeing as the kind people at mathsisfun already have done, there seems little point.

Well according to my GCSE maths non-calculator thing, this is how you do it:

598 divided by 23

2
Divide to get 23/598 (23 goes into 59 2 and a bit times, so 2 goes above)

multiply 2 by 23 to get 46, and put 46 below 59

Subtract 59 - 46 = 13, and transfer the 8 down:

2
23/598
46
138

Then repeat the whole divide, multiply and subtract process again to get 598/23 = 26

Hope that helps!
