Double Digit Division Worksheets
Once we advance beyond dividing numbers by single digit divisors, the concept of division gets complicated quickly. When you are working with problems, like this, just make sure to keep yourself organized throughout the process and it will not that difficult for you. I would not consider this topic to be long division, but it definitely is starting to form the foundation and it helps us move that direction. Complete instruction on how to process these calculations can be found in our lesson or also at the bottom of this page. Students learn how to divide two two-digit numbers into one another with this collection of worksheets and lessons.

How to Divide Double Digit Numbers
Just a quick review on the anatomy of a division problem, so that we can be specific about what we are speaking about. A typical problem consists of 3 or 4 components.
Dividend ÷ Divisor = Quotient (Possible Remainder)
The dividend is the number that is being broken up. The divisor is how many parts or groups it is being broken into. The quotient is the number times the divisor evenly fits into the dividend. The remainder is any amount left over. Becoming familiar with the terms before you start division is just as important as learning about a new concept. Much as a double-digit division is the same as single-digit divisions, it takes time and requires a little more comprehension than single-digit numbers. This is because most of us haven't learned double-digits tables. This takes up a little more time than usual. However, there are a few tricks that you can follow or learn to make double-digit numbers faster.
1. Look at the first digit and see if it's greater than the divisor or not. If not, then add the next digit in the first and make it a greater value than the divisor.
2. Now multiply to get a number closer to the first digits. You might use a little guesswork too.
3. Write the answer above the last digit you used.
4. Now bring down the next digit and solve the next digit problem.
5. Continue the same method as you move forward. Find the remainder.
Example Problem - 1825 ÷ 73
Solution - Using the tips that we have already discussed, here are the steps we would take to solve this problem.
1. 73 would fit into 182. It would be able to do that 2 times. 2 is the first part of quotient. It would us with a remainder of 36. We would then drop the remaining 5 from the dividend and be left with 365.
2. 73 would fit into 365, 5 times. That would be the second and terminating part of our quotient (25).
