Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Let's check you will be able to find it.

Test.  Can you find your old GCSE thread?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

I have just spoken to Bob and he has said that the reason why he asked that question was mainly to establish that you do know
how to find that thread. He has also said that it would be a good idea for someone who has admin permissions to move this thread
to the "Help me" area and rename it to something that reflects what the thread actually is. Bob Bundy does not actually have the
necessary permissions to do that - he can delete posts because he is a moderator, but not move a thread and rename it.

Hello mandy,

Please be a little patient. People actually need some time before they know that you have posted

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Hi;

I will move it into "Help Me." Is that okay?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

No let me show you (I will use short division, but the long division of this amounts to the same thing as I could show you).
Right here goes:

       --------------------
  5  |   4 . 0 0 0

4 divided by 5 is 0 remainder 4 so:   The 4 becomes a forty in the next bit of the number using a zero that I added ....
         0
       --------------------
  5  |  4 .  [40]  0  0

Now what is 40 divided by 5 ?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

0 .    8
       --------------------
  5  |  4 .  [40]  0  0

So I have now put an 8 up the top in the answer part of the division. Now there is no remainder and the other zeros
afterwards were really there just in case, and in this particular case they are not needed. So that is the answer to 4 / 5
ie.  0 . 8
