1. \(\frac{5}{32}=0.15625\)

 

2. \(6 \frac{1}{16}=\frac{97}{16}=6.0625\)

 

3. \(8 \frac{21}{40}=\frac{341}{40}=8.525\)

 

4. \(8 \frac{43}{80}=\frac{1003}{80}=12.5375\)

 

5. \(9 \frac{9}{32}=\frac{297}{32}=9.28125\)

Well neither is a calculator. Me giving answers is the same as looking for answer on a calculator, right? Not trying to be mean, but I don't think it's a good idea to write an entire article on webcalc. Long division isn't hard, I think. But I'm not really supposed to teach them something that already has many articles about it and/or their teacher taught them. Can they not ask their teacher? I'll give a short summary of long division then. However, a calculator, like CPhill said, is a good tool for double-checking! :)

 

 

Long division is division but longer. Here are the steps for it:

 

1. Divide the tens column dividend by the divisor.


2. Multiply the divisor by the quotient in the tens place column.

 

3. Subtract the product from the divisor.

 

4. Bring down the dividend in the ones column and repeat.


Hope this somewhat helps! :))))
