What Is Long Division? Generally, a division is a mathematical operation, also considered an opposite operation of multiplication. It is the process of splitting into equal parts or groups that results in fair or equitable sharing. For example, there are 15 cupcakes required to be divided among 3 friends. How can you share them equally? Divide 15 by 3, and you will get the answer. But sometimes the numbers are complex and extensive. In such a situation, we commonly use a long division method to divide large or big numbers into parts and groups. These are division problems that you cannot do in your head. The long division helps in breaking down large and complex numbers into a sequence of steps that makes solving easier. Just like other division problems, there is a dividend, which is the large number divided by another number called the dividend — both these numbers divide to give a result quotient and in many cases, a remainder. In the long division method, the splitting and grouping of dividends is the most important thing to make the problem easy to solve. Understanding this trick is basically the core principle of the long division method. These worksheets are great when you are starting to learn long division.
