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.

Hi steveb. 4 divided by 5 = 1 am I right then?

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 ?

40 divided 5 = 8 am I right?

**SteveB****Member**- Registered: 2013-03-07

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
