# How do you divide 67,396\div 123?

The answer is 547, Remainder 115.

#### Explanation:

We can write $67 , 396 \div 123$ as:

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{123}{\textcolor{b l a c k}{123}}} \frac{\textcolor{w h i t e}{67 , 396}}{\text{)} 67 , 396}$

And we can do the division now.

$123 \times 5 = 615$, and so:

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{123}{\textcolor{b l a c k}{123}}} \frac{\textcolor{w h i t e}{67 , \textcolor{b l a c k}{5} 96}}{\text{)} 67 , 396}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{0000} \frac{61 \textcolor{w h i t e}{,} 5}{\textcolor{w h i t e}{00} 5 \textcolor{w h i t e}{,} 89}$

We took $673 - 615 = 58$ as the remainder of this step, then brought down the next digit, the 9, giving us 589 to work with. $123 \times 4 = 492$ and so:

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{123}{\textcolor{b l a c k}{123}}} \frac{\textcolor{w h i t e}{67 , \textcolor{b l a c k}{54} 6}}{\text{)} 67 , 396}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{0000} \frac{61 \textcolor{w h i t e}{,} 5}{\textcolor{w h i t e}{00} 5 \textcolor{w h i t e}{,} 89}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{00000} \frac{4 \textcolor{w h i t e}{,} 92}{\textcolor{w h i t e}{000} 976}$

We took $589 - 492 = 97$ as the remainder of this step, then brought down the next digit, the 6, giving us 976 to work with. $123 \times 7 = 861$ and so:

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{123}{\textcolor{b l a c k}{123}}} \frac{\textcolor{w h i t e}{67 , \textcolor{b l a c k}{547}}}{\text{)} 67 , 396}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{0000} \frac{61 \textcolor{w h i t e}{,} 5}{\textcolor{w h i t e}{00} 5 \textcolor{w h i t e}{,} 89}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{00000} \frac{4 \textcolor{w h i t e}{,} 92}{\textcolor{w h i t e}{000} 976}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{00000000} \frac{861}{115}$

We took $976 - 861 = 115$ as the remainder of this step.

And so the answer is 547, Remainder 115.
