Fill in the missing parts in the long division below and complete the answer.

### Solution

- As we can see that the quotient starts with 0…., we can say that the divisor is greater than the dividend. Hence 0 is added at each step to make the value divisible by the divisor.
- Start by finding the divisor. As we have the first digit of the quotient and the product 64, we can conclude that 16 x 4=64.
**Hence the divisor is 16.** - The blank in the second step is the difference between 70 and 64.

**70-64=6.** - Find the blank in the quotient by finding the number of times 60 is divisible by 16.
**16×3=48.****Hence the first blank in the quotient is 3.** - In the third step, we can see that 16 divides 120 seven times. Hence

**16×7=112.** - The last blank in the quotient is the number of times 16 exactly divides 80.

**16×5=80.**
