Hi, my name is Marija. And today, I'm going to show you how to divide two digits by one digit the easy. So, we're going to go ahead and try to divide 96 divided by three. So, when we do this, our one digit number is going to go ahead and come outside of the house. And our two digit number, 96 is going to go inside. So, you're going to ask yourself, how many times does this one digit number, three go into the first number, nine. And the answer is three. So, whatever number we put up here up top, we do three times three and we get, nine. Since nine minus nine is zero, we go ahead and bring down the next digit. And we follow the same exact process. So, now we ask ourselves, how many times does three go into six? And three goes into six, two times. So, that two comes up top and again, we're still following the same process, two times three is six. The product goes down here, we subtract again, six minus six is zero. And since there's no numbers left to bring down and there's no remainder. That means that three went into 96, 32 times. And that is how you divide a two digit number by a one digit number easily.
