ok i have another question these problees are alittle different... it's division: but it says find the quotints and remainders?
then it has a problem of:
5 divided by 68
or 68 divided by 5???

The quotient is the answer to a division problem. The remainder is what is left over after you've divided the whole numbers.
68 divided by 5 = 13 with a remainder of 3. 
68 divided by 5 I suspect. I do not think you are doing fractions yet.
**_1_____
5 68
***5x five into six once

***18 65 is 1 and bring down 8
**_13_____ five into 18 three times
5 68
***5x

***18 65 is 1 and bring down 8
***15 three times five is 15

****3 left over as R = 3
so answer is 13 3/5
