Solve the following problems using Partial Quotients a. 7752/17 b. 651/3

try 100
77521700=6052
try 300
60525100 = 952
try 50
952850 = 102
try 5
10285 = 17
try 1
1717 = 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.
