Welcome to Partial Quotients!

Step 1-How many times can 15 go into 34.

Step 2- Since 15 can go into 34 twice, you will bring the 2 directly above the 4 (in the tens place).

Step 3- Put a zero in the ones place.

Step 4- Multiply the 2 (in the tens place) and the 15 to get 30. Then you will fill in the ones place with a zero. Doing it this way will give you the same result as 20 x 15. Your answer is 300.

Step 5-Subtract 345 and 300. Your answer will be 45 and will carry over to the next square.

Step 6-You will now look at the 15 again and see how many times it goes into 45.

Step 7- The number 15 goes into 45 (three times). You will bring the 3 directly above the 5 (in the ones column).

Step 8-You will add the numbers together at the top of the rectangle (20 + 3).

Step 9-The answer (quotient) to your division problem is 23.
