Calculator Preferences
Long Division Calculator

This calculator will not only perform long division, but it will also show and explain each step it took to solve the problem. The calculated results even include a chart showing multiples of the divisor so you can learn your math facts while you are doing your long division practice. The Learn tab includes:

How to do long division when dividing...

• Whole numbers with no remainder.
• Whole numbers with whole remainder.
• Decimal numbers with no remainder.
• Decimal numbers with decimal remainder.

#### Selected Data Record:

A Data Record is a set of calculator entries that are stored in your web browser's Local Storage. If a Data Record is currently selected in the "Data" tab, this line will list the name you gave to that data record. If no data record is selected, or you have no entries stored for this calculator, the line will display "None".

Divisor:Divisor:Divisor:Divisor:

#### Divisor:

Enter the divisor in the left-hand field on the line below (number greater than zero). The divisor is the number being divided into another number. If the divisor you enter is greater than the dividend, the result will be a decimal number less than 1.

Dividend:Dividend:Dividend:Dividend:

#### Dividend:

Enter the dividend in the right-hand field on the line below (number greater than zero). The dividend is the number being divided by another number.

#### Long division quotient:

This is the result the long division calculator stopped at. Please double check this result with the result on the next line.

Calculated:Calculated quotient:Calculated division quotient:Calculated division quotient:

#### Calculated division quotient:

This is the result you would likely get if you used a standard calculator for the division. This result is provided as a means to check the long division result for accuracy. Note that if the result contains more than 16 digits the last digit(s) is likely rounded.

Whole num:Whole number:Whole number portion of quotient:Whole number portion of quotient:

#### Whole number portion of quotient:

This is the whole number portion of the quotient. The quotient is the result of dividing one number by another.

Remainder:Remainder:Remainder:Remainder:

#### Remainder:

This is what is left after multiplying the whole number portion of the quotient by the divisor, and then subtracting that result from the dividend.

If you would like to save the current entries to the secure online database, tap or click on the Data tab, select "New Data Record", give the data record a name, then tap or click the Save button.

Help and Tools

#### Help and Tools:

This section, which you can Unstick or Hide in the Calculator Preferences (just above the top of the calculator), contains the following tabs (content too long to fit within bordered frame can be scrolled up and down):

About: Click this tab for an introduction to the calculator.

Instructions: Click this tab for step-by-step instructions for using the calculator.

Terms: Click this tab for a list of the descriptions that are located within each popup help button (info icons).

PCalc: Click this tab for a handy "pocket" calculator you can use when you need to calculate an entry needed for the calculator.

Data: Click this tab to save a set of entries or a note in between visits. Entries and notes will be stored to your web browser's local storage (if supported by your browser of choice), meaning they can only be recalled with the same device and web browser you were using when you saved them. If you'd like to save entries and notes between devices you can do so by subscribing to the Ad-Free Member Version.

Move the slider to left and right to adjust the calculator width. Note that the Help and Tools panel will be hidden when the calculator is too wide to fit both on the screen. Moving the slider to the left will bring the instructions and tools panel back into view.

Also note that some calculators will reformat to accommodate the screen size as you make the calculator wider or narrower. If the calculator is narrow, columns of entry rows will be converted to a vertical entry form, whereas a wider calculator will display columns of entry rows, and the entry fields will be smaller in size ... since they will not need to be "thumb friendly".
