How do you do this problem

  1. Jan 5, 2015 #1
    I got this problem off the internet and need some help understanding how to do it. first you do 9 goes into 44 4 times so you put a 4 on top then you do 9 times 4 equals 36 so you put the 36 under the 44. next you do 44 minus 36 which is 8 and bring down the 3. can you please explain how to get the other numbers in the problem ?

    If I tell you that 9 goes into 83 9 times, can you take it the rest of the way?

    9 x 9 = 81, subtract that from the 83, gives you 2, bring down the 4 -----
    Starting to see the pattern?

    9*2= 18< 24< 27= 9*3

    Since "9*3" is too large, we take "2" leaving a remainder of 24- 18= 6.
