Quotient |

Case 2: Division of a number with a flag of one digit ( with remainder).

Consider 26382/77

The quotient is 342 and the reaminder is 48, which appears under the column just after the colon. The final answer in decimal form is 342.623.

Steps:

1.) The steps as explained before are carried out till we reach the column after the colon which shows the reaminder as 48. If we want to get the answer in decimal form we have to carry out division further by using the same procedure.

2.) Divide 48 by 7 to get the quotient as 6 and remainder as 6.

3.) Now we attach a zero to the dividend and write the remainder to its left giving the next number as 60.

4.) Multiply the quotient 6 by the flag 7 to get 42 and substract it from 60 to get 18.

5.) Divide 18 by 7 to get quotient as 2 and remainder as 4.

6.) Carry the remainder 4 to the next digit 0 (attached as before) and get 40.

7.) Multiply the quotient 2 by flag 7 to get 14 and substract it from 40 to get 26.

8.) Divide 26 by 7 to get the quotiuent as 3 and remainder as 5.

The process can be carried out further to any number of digits.
