3. so it would be 144 cause 472-43=429 next you would divide 429 with 3 so 3 goes into 4 one time so put the 3 there then subtract 4-3=1 then you bring down the 2 and get 12!next thing you do is 3 goes into 12,4 times so you put the 4 next to the 1 and get 14.Your almost done!next thing you do is 3 goes into 14 4 times so you put 12 on the bottom then subtract 12-12=0!Then you bring down the 9 and get 09! 3 goes into 9,3 times so you put another 9 below the first 9 then you subtract so it would be 9-9=0! so 0 left over and the numbers on top would be your answer! Your welcome! :D
