Long division helps you divide big numbers step by step. Let’s learn how with an example: $$287\div 5$$

287 is called the *dividend*, and 5 is the *divisor*. We set up the long division as follows:

**Practice with smaller numbers**: Start with simple problems to build your confidence before moving to larger ones.**Work slowly and carefully**: Double-check each step, especially your subtraction, to avoid mistakes.**Write neatly**: Keeping numbers aligned helps you avoid confusion, especially when bringing down digits.**Check your multiplication**: Multiply accurately. Knowing your multiplication tables makes dividing much easier and faster.**Use estimation**: If you're unsure how many times the divisor fits, estimate first and adjust if needed.
