Division without calculatorWhat am I doing wrong with this division #2 20130907 05:54:57
Re: Division without calculatorHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20130907 06:47:43
Re: Division without calculatorYou just keep adding it to the next digit like you were doing before the decimal. If you have a remainder of 5 and the next digit is 0 then it becomes a 50. This can happen before the decimal too. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
