Today you will see two types of division algorithms. You are very familiar with the first one. We looked at that one last week.

The steps for the traditional method are:

divide

multiply back

subtract

bring down

The alternate method is called the partial quotient division.

You will still use the same steps, but instead of breaking the numbers down into smaller ones, you use the full dividend.

Let's watch this tutorial and see what is going on!!
