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 take away the bottom number from the top number. 


Bring down the next number of the dividend. 

43 ÷ 25 = 1 remainder 18 
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. 

43 – 25 = 18 
Now we take away the bottom number from the top number. 


Bring down the next number of the dividend. 

185 ÷ 25 = 7 remainder 10 
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. 

185 – 175 = 10 
Now we take away the bottom number from the top number. 


There is still 10 left over but no more numbers to bring down. 


With a long division with remainders the answer is expressed as
17 remainder 10 as shown in the diagram
