# 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:

Step 8: Subtract the result of the previous step from the number above it. (24 – 24 = 0) and write the answer below.

You’re done, because there are no more points to go below the dividend.
The answer is the top number and the rest is the bottom number.
Therefore, the answer for dividing 24 by 3, calculated using long division, is:
