This free online calculator will divide one number (dividend) by another number (divisor) using the long division method, and show and explain each step.
The calculator will accommodate divisors and dividends containing decimal points, and will give the remainder in both the whole number and the decimal format.
Plus, unlike other online long division calculators, the calculated results will list the 1-9 multiples of the divisor to help you learn your factors, and will also report the detection of patterns which may indicate the result is a recurring decimal.
To show you how to do long division I will give the actual calculator results involving four common long division scenarios:
To follow the steps I took as I proceeded through each long division example, scroll each question-mark to the top portion of screen and hover your mouse over the question mark.
With that, let's use the Long Division Calculator to create a step-by-step explanation of how to use long division to find the quotient of one number divided by another, and to check your work during long division practice sessions.

Divisor: Enter the divisor in the first entry box on this line (number greater than zero). The divisor is the number being divided into another number.
Dividend: Next enter the dividend in second entry box (number greater than zero). The dividend is the number being divided by another number.
Long division quotient: This is the result the long division calculator stopped at. Please double check this result with the result on the next line.
Calculated division quotient: This is the result you would likely get if you used a standard calculator for the division. This result is provided as a means to check the long division result for accuracy. Note that if the result contains more than 16 digits the last digit(s) is likely rounded.
Whole number portion of quotient: This is the whole number portion of the quotient. The quotient is the result of dividing one number by another.
Remainder: This is what is left after multiplying the whole number portion of the quotient by the divisor, and then subtracting that result from the dividend.
