divide in the indicated base
5 / 111
8 8

Division in other bases is very much similar to division in base 10, except that the multiplication and subtraction have to be done (mentally) in the given base.
This forum does not permit lining up digits, so a long division demonstration is not possible.
Try another site such as:

(Note that the division (2252÷23 in base 7) was not done correctly, because 6*23_{7} is 204_{7}, not 203_{7}. Consequently, the answer should have been 66_{7} with a remainder of 5).
If you have questions, post.
