Solve using long division methods
How to use long division
To divide by larger amounts we use long division.
Set the calculation out as neatly as possible.
We have used 15x20=300 as our first calculation, so we subtract 300 from 375 which leaves 75
Now we are left with the calculation 75/15 so we repeat the process.
We have used 15x5=75 as our first calculation, so we subtract 75 from 75 which leaves 0, so we now need to add up all the amounts that we have multiplied 15 by, we have 15x20 and 15x5, so you now add 20+5=25, so 375/15=25
