    I know that I should probably already know how to do this. Its particularly unusual how a student who's great at trigonometry and solving quadratic and simultaneous equations is very bad at dividing.

    Anyway.. could someone please show me the step by step of long division needed to solve 40000/125. I know the answer is 320 and I know that 12 goes into 40 "3" times so that is where the 3 from 320 comes from. But where do I get the 20 from?

    Please help me lol x

    I can do short division for you? (but don't know how to represent it on here)

    125]40000

    How many times does 125 go into 4? 0
    Into 40? 0
    Into 400? 3 times but with 25 left over (125 * 3 = 375)
    Carry the 25 onto the next digit, which is a 0, and you have 250 as your next number.
    How many times does 125 go into 250? 2 times exactly.
    Into 0? 0

    The number you have at the end is 00320 --> 320
