4 ÷ 25 = 0 remainder
4 
The first number of the dividend is
divided by the divisor. 


The whole number result is placed at the top. Any remainders
are ignored at this point. 

25 × 0 = 0 
The answer from the first operation is multiplied by the divisor.
The result is placed under the number divided into. 

4 – 0 = 4 
Now we subtract the bottom number from the top number. 


Bring down the next number of the dividend. 

42 ÷ 25 = 1 remainder 17 
Divide this number by the divisor. 


The whole number result is placed at the top. Any remainders
are ignored at this point. 

25 × 1 = 25 
The answer from the above operation is multiplied by the divisor.
The result is placed under the last number divided into. 

42 – 25 = 17 
Now we subtract the bottom number from the top number. 


Bring down the next number of the dividend. 

175 ÷ 25 = 7 remainder 0 
Divide this number by the divisor. 


The whole number result is placed at the top. Any remainders
are ignored at this point. 

25 × 7 = 175 
The answer from the above operation is multiplied by the divisor.
The result is placed under the number divided into. 

175 – 175 = 0 
Now we subtract the bottom number from the top number. 


There are no more numbers to bring down.
The answer must be 17
