# Division Algorithm

We can find this by long division (or) standard division algorithm.

Division Algorithm

Mr. Sabari lives in kovalur village. He is a farmer and has a cow. He gets milk from it and sells the milk to 8 houses daily. His cow gives 8 L of milk daily. So it gives 240 L of milk for 30 days. If so, how much of milk is bought by each house. In a month Mr. Sabari shares 240 L of milk to each 8 houses

So we have to split 240 in 8 parts. We can find this by long division (or) standard division algorithm. Step: 1

240 is whole part We are going to divide 240. Here 240 is the dividend

Step: 2

We have to split 240 into 8 equal parts, Here 8 is the divisor

Step: 3

There are three 8’s in 24. (8+8+8=24)

Write 3 on the top of the line. 3 × 8 = 24

Write the product 24 below the 24, starting from the left side.

Step: 4

Next write down ‘0’. We Can’t divide 0 by 8

So, write ‘0’ on the top near 3.

So 30 is quotient

It means, each house bought 30 L in a month.

Note:

Generally, when we are doing addition subtraction multiplication, we are starting from units place.

But in division, We do in opposite manner.

First choose the highest digit.

Here 2 is smaller than 8 so take 2 from Ten’s place. Now we have 24.

2. Find Quotient and Remainder 53675 ÷ 8 Dividend = 53675

Divisor = 8

Quotient = 6709

Remainder = 3
