Here we will show you step-by-step with detailed explanation how to calculate 5 divided by 4 using long division.
Before you continue, note that in the problem 5 divided by 4, the numbers are defined as follows:
5 = dividend
4 = divisor
Start by setting it up with the divisor 4 on the left side and the dividend 5 on the right side like this:
The divisor (4) goes into the first digit of the dividend (5), 1 time(s). Therefore, put 1 on top:
Multiply the divisor by the result in the previous step (4 x 1 = 4) and write that answer below the dividend.
Subtract the result in the previous step from the first digit of the dividend (5 - 4 = 1) and write the answer below.
You are done.
The answer is the top number and the remainder is the bottom number.
Therefore, the answer to 5 divided by 4 calculated using Long Division is:
