Here we will show you step-by-step with detailed explanation how to calculate 5 divided by 6 using long division.

Before you continue, note that in the problem 5 divided by 6, the numbers are defined as follows:

**5 = dividend**

**6 = divisor**

**Step 1:**

Start by setting it up with the divisor 6 on the left side and the dividend 5 on the right side like this:

6 | ⟌ | 5 |

**Step 2:**

The divisor (6) goes into the first digit of the dividend (5), 0 time(s). Therefore, put 0 on top:

0 | ||||||

6 | ⟌ | 5 |

**Step 3:**

Multiply the divisor by the result in the previous step (6 x 0 = 0) and write that answer below the dividend.

0 | ||||||

6 | ⟌ | 5 | ||||

0 |

**Step 4:**

Subtract the result in the previous step from the first digit of the dividend (5 - 0 = 5) and write the answer below.
