Have you already learned about dividing by a two-digit number?

In this post, we are going to review how to divide by a two-digit number using an example.

**First, let’s review the parts of the division problem:**

Now we are going to do this same division problem step-by-step:

**1. We select the first digits of the dividend. We have to follow two steps:**

- We choose the
**same number of digits that the divisor has**. In this case, there are two digits.

- The total of the digits we have selected should be greater than the divisor. If this is not the case, we should take another digit.

**2. We write the first number of the quotient.**

Now we should look for a number that, when multiplied by the divisor (26), is **equal to or less than** the selected number (34), **always looking for the greatest multiple that fits**.

When we find that number, we place it in the quotient.

**3. We divide the first digits:**

We multiply the quotient by the divisor, and we write the result under the dividend. Then, we find the difference.

(**Attention! **It should always be less than the divisor.)

**4. We bring down the next digit and repeat steps 2 and 3**

**5. We end the division**

We continue repeating step 4 until we run out of digits to bring down. The last number that we are left with under the dividend is the remainder. Remember that **the remainder should always be less than the divisor**!

Now, do you remember how to do divide by a two-digit number?
