  1. Today I learnt that long division is not hard as long as you remember the steps:
    It is sort of like doing little puzzles to get one answer altogether.

  2. I was not understanding but I learnt what order to figure out long division, Divide, Multiply, Subtract, Bring next digit down, Repeat-Remainder.

  3. I learnt that the letters
    D ivision
    M ultiply
    S ubtract
    B bring the next digit down
    R emainder

  4. Today in our long division lesson I learned how to easily remember the steps of it. I liked to use the the letters so I wouldn’t forget. This is demonstration of the way I like to learn it.

    D- Division➗
    M- Multiply ✖️
    S- Subtract ➖

  6. I learned that there are three ways yo write the steps for long division.

    M M x x
    S S – –
    B B | |
    —– —— ——
