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

  • math -

    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.
