Long division calculator is used for problems regarding division operation. It has two main functions. It can solve

- Long division with remainder
- Long division with decimal

The tool is user-friendly and can be used without any previous experience. The result consists of two parts; the end result and the step-by-step long division.

You can choose the number of decimals as well. If you like this tool then make sure to visit Long Addition Calculator as well. Let’s learn about long division and the methods used to solve it.

To use the long division calculator, you will have to

- Choose the division type i.e with a remainder or decimal answer.
- Enter the value of dividend and divisor.
- Click
**Calculate**.

The result will show right after you complete these steps.

The process of solving the division process in multiple steps is called long division. The dividend and divider usually consist of 2 or more digits.

In short, it is the division method that is detailed. Now, it is further divided into two types.

It is the process in which the dividend is Divided up to only the whole quotient. If the dividend becomes smaller than the divisor it is left untouched at the bottom.

This left number is known as the remainder. To solve questions with this method you have to solve the dividend until no more division is possible.

Let’s see an example for a better understanding.

**Example:**

Divide **234** by **5**.

**Solution:**

**Step 1:** Write **234** under the long division symbol.

**Step 2:** Make the first divisible pair since 2 is smaller than 5.

**Step 3:** Solve.

**Step 4:** Bring down 4 to make a divisible number.

Hence **4** is the remainder.

There are two main reasons to use this method.

- Your dividend or divisor has a decimal point.
- You want a quotient in decimal value.

If the divisor is in decimal value, the decimal point is moved in such a way to make it a whole number. To balance this step, the decimal point is also moved in the dividend value.

**Example:**

Solve for three decimal places:

Divisor: **2.1**

Dividend: **346**

**Solution:**

**Step 1:** Move the decimal point one place to the right in the divisor.

Divisor = **21.0**

Since the divisor is changed, the dividend will also need changing.

Dividend = **3.46**

**Step 2: **Solve.

The answer is **0.164**.

If both dividend and divisor are in whole numbers and you want a decimal value quotient, then you add a point in the quotient and zero with the remainder to continue solving.

**Example:**

Solve **112/3 **for **2 **decimal values.

**Solution:**

The answer is **37.33**.

You can solve all of these methods using the long division calculator.
