Explanation: to remember the steps for long division.

Estimate, Divide, Multiply, Subtract, Bring down, Redo (all steps), Check (by multiplying the quotient – plus any remainder times the divisor).
 Students use compatible numbers to estimate the quotient.
 Then – follow each step to complete the division.
 ALWAYS check by multiplication to find the dividend.
 Note: If it is a decimal number that repeats – it will never be the exact dividend but will round to the exact dividend.
