#### How do you divide double numbers such as 659 divided by 32?

Very easily:

1)how many 32s fit into 6, see the answer is 0 remainder 6, then you move the remainder 6 onto the the second digit 5 to make 65

2)how many 32s fit into 65, the answer is 2 remainder 1. You move that 1 to the next digit to make 19

3)how many 32s fit into 19. Answer=0 remainder 19.

Message me for info if you need but definitely look up the bus stop method.

You can use the DMS method
