Lesson 2: Division

# Dividing by 2-digits: 7182÷42

Dividing large numbers by two-digit numbers can be done step by step. Start by fitting the divisor into each part of the dividend, then subtract and bring down the next digit. Estimate the number of times the divisor fits into the new number, and repeat the process until there's no remainder. This method simplifies complex division problems. Created by Sal Khan.

• Is it possible that you could divide a number with 2 digits by a number with 3?
• Yes, but you would end up with a decimal number as your quotient.
• kinda off topic but this popped into my mind. if i where to divide two of the same numbers by each other i would get 1 right? because division is multiplication flipped around correct?
• Yea pretty much you can also use that method later to get any number by itself
• Quick question, how would you divide a problem that has the divisor greater than the dividend? for example, 24 divided by 50
• 24÷50=24/50.
When the divisor is greater than the dividend, it turns into a fraction. The dividend becomes the numerator and the divisor becomes the denominator.

• Khan Academy gives the free power of learning and gives you the ability to change the language. I am so grateful for Khan Academy that not only promotes education but gives happiness. I believe if you don't love a subject you won't do well, you need to do it from you're heart. Khan Academy is a game changer and a life saver. Thanks Khan. What could be next?
• Why is math so important for you l want to live in a world where math is not important to be successful and you just had to learn science l love science or English to be a library teacher or history too be a museum person you know
• You still need math for figuring out things related to money. And to cook food, as well as many other important skills.
