Divide a 7Digit Number by a 4Digit Number
To divide a sevendigit number by a fourdigit number (for example 1365420 ÷ 2276), follow these steps:
 Place the divisor (2276) before the division bracket and place the dividend (1365420) under it.
2276)1365420
Examine the first four digits of the dividend (1365). The number 1365 is smaller than 2276
so it can't be divided by 2276 to produce a whole number. Next take the first five
digits of the dividend (13654) and determine how many 2276's it contains. The number
13654 contains five 2276's (2276*5=11380) but not 6 (2276*6=13656). Place the 5 above
the division bracket directly above the 4.

2276)1365420
Multiply the 5 by 2276 and place the result (11380) below the 13654 of the dividend.

2276)1365420
11380
Draw a line under the 11380 and subtract it from 13654 (1365411380 = 2274).

2274
Bring down the 2 from the 1365420 and place it to the right of the 4 in 2274.
5
2276)1365420
11380
22742
Divide 22742 by 2276 and place that answer above the division bracket to the
right of the 5.

2276)1365420
11380
22742
Multiply the 9 of the quotient by the divisor (2276) to get 20484 and place
this below the 22742. Draw a line under the 20484 and subtract 20484 from 22742
to get an answer of 2258. Bring down the 0 from the 1365420 and place it to the
right of the 8 in 2258.

22580
Divide 22580 by 2276 and place that answer above the division bracket to the
right of the 9. Bring down the 0 from the 1365420 and place it to the
right of the 8.

Multiply the 9 of the quotient by the divisor (2276) to get 20484 and place
this below the 22580. Draw a line under the 20484 and subtract 20484 from 22580
to get an answer of 2096. The number 2096 is called the "remainder" and indicates
that there were 2096 left over.
