Slide 12

BRING DOWN

Wow! You’ve just completed every step of DMSB! But, wait! There’s more!

3 )74

-6 14

We now have a new number and we have to start all over again…

Slide 13

DIVIDE

First, we want to DIVIDE.

Ask yourself: “How many times can 3 go into 14?”

2

3 )74

-6 14

Slide 14

DIVIDE

You want to find the closest number to 14 without going over!

In this case it’s 4 times because 3 x 4 is 12

5 times is too high since 3 x 5 = 15

Slide 15

DIVIDE

Now, place your 4 above the 4, because 3 goes into 14 four times.

24

3 )74

-6 14

You’ve just completed the divide. Now, we’ll move onto multiply.

The 4 becomes the second part of your quotient. You’re almost done!

Slide 16

MULTIPLY

Next, you want to multiply 3 times 4:

24

3 )74

-6 14

3 x 4 = 12 12

We do this because we said that 3 can go into 14 four times, but now we have to find out how close to 14 we can get. So we multiply!

Slide 17

MULTIPLY

That was a really simple step!

Now, we want to move on to subtract!

Slide 18

## Subtract

Now that we know how many times 3 goes into 14, we have to subtract to see the difference between the numbers:

24

3 )74

-6 14

-12

2

Good! We know 14-12 = 2. Leave your 2 in it’s spot, because we’re going to use it for the bring down!

Slide 19

## Bring down

When you bring down, you’re moving the next part of your dividend into your workspace:

24

3 )74 ?

-6 14

-12

2 ?

But wait!! There’s nothing to bring down!! This is OK! You have no more numbers in your dividend to add to your workspace so you’re almost done! If there was a third number in our dividend, then we would start DMSB all over again! You want to keep going until you have nothing to bring down.

Slide 20

## Remainder

The remainder is what you have left over (or what is remaining) after you have nothing to bring down:

24 R - 2

3 )74

-6 14

-12

2

In this problem, the remainder is 2 because 14-12 = 2. Write your remainder next to your answer.
