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




  • 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 x 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 x 7 = 112
  • The last blank in the quotient is the number of times 16 exactly divides 80.
    16 x 5 = 80
