# 24 divided by 3

Come friends today we will learn how to 24 divided by 3, here we will show you step by step with detailed explanation how to divide 24 by 3 using long division.

Before proceeding, note that in problem 24 divided by 3, the numbers are defined as follows:

24 = dividend
3 = divisor

Phase 1:
Start by setting it up with the divisor 3 on the left and the dividend 24 on the right, like this:
step 2:
The denominator (3) goes to the first digit (2) of the dividend, times 0. So, put the 0 above:
step 3:
Multiply the denominator by the result from the previous step (3 x 0 = 0) and write that answer under the dividend.
step 4:
Subtract the result from the previous step from the first digit of the dividend (2 – 0 = 2) and write the answer below.
Step 5:
Move the second digit (4) of the dividend down as follows:
Step 6:
Every (3) the smaller number (24), goes over 8 times(s). So, put 8 up:

Step 7: Multiply the denominator by the result from the previous step (3 x 8 = 24) and write that answer down:
