# Long Division Index

Long Division is easy, **once you get the idea**.

Hopefully some of these pages will "click" with you and you will become a master!

## Why Long Division

The simplest way to do division is by **repeated subtraction**.

### Example: What is 48 / 12?

- Take 48, subtract 12, you get 36
- Repeat: 36-12 = 24
- Repeat: 24-12 = 12
- Repeat: 12-12 = 0

You had to do 4 subtractions, so 48 / 12 = 4

But this could take a long time for something like 3768 / 12, so there is a faster method called **Long Division**.
