• Is there any easier way because I don't get this. :(
• If you don't get it,then you won't be able to do the exercises.I suggest you to go on the exercises & write the problems with the steps down,so you could understand it next go round.
• Well, you you could say how may times does the number need to get to the hundred? You can say, 7 x 100 is 700, so that way you can subtract the hundred and if you get an answer, you keep on doing it to add the numbers. And also, if you have any more questions, answer me if you need help. Have a nice day ✌.
• hi i like you avatar
• I dont understand.. can someone explain?🤨
• One way to understand it is to look at it this way: each partial product can represent a portion of each of the numbers on the paper. You can take for example 45\2. You can take 5 and divide it, and you get 2R2. Next, divide 40 and you get 20. You then add the two answers and you get the quotient, 22 with a remainder of 2.
• I think Sal goes way to fast, I can't keep up with him.
• I agree

• How do you even write so good on that board. I can barley write on something like that.
• Had to watch three times to understand😆😆😆
• As long as you learn it, I think it's fine to struggle.
