I decided to write an arbitrary precision calculator but I'm having problems with division.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It will multiply a thousand digit number by another thousand digit number in about a second but to get a division result to about 250 decimal places is taking around 20 seconds, I cannot figure out how it should be done.

Anybody have any ideas?
