try 100

7752-1700=6052

try 300

6052-5100 = 952

try 50

952-850 = 102

try 5

102-85 = 17

try 1

17-17 = 0

add up partial quotients: 100+300+50+5+1 = 456

check: 456*17 = 7752

It's just like regular long division, but instead of trying to guess the best quotient at each step, just keep track of what you used, and add 'em up at the end.
