Long Division Song

The long division song works through a problem with a 1-Digit Divisor and a 3 Digit Dividend and comes out with a remainder. The animation contains a very catchy song that kids will love, and even more importantly, remember. Divide, Multiply, Subtract, Bring Down. That's how a quotient is found. Welcome to long division made easy as we go through the process step by step.

Song Lyrics:

Five Groups of Five are 29
Their Product is 25
Put That 5 Above the Line
On Top off the Line
Then Draw a Subtraction Sign
And Write the 25
The Difference is Four and There's One Step More
Bring the Eight Down Next to the Four

Divide, Multiply, Subtract, Bring Down
That's How A Quotient is Found

Divide 48 By Groups of Five
You Will Find That There Are Nine.
Put That Nine Above The Line
And Multiply Nine By Five
Then Draw A Subtraction Sign
And Write the 45
The Remainder is Three
So Write Our Three
That's How Easy Division Can Be

Divide, Multiply, Subtract, Bring Down
That's How A Quotient is Found

Divide, Multiply, Subtract, Bring Down
That's How A Quotient is Found!

And When There's a Remainder,
Write R Followed by What is Left Over
That's How A Quotient is Found!
