To divide a large number by a -digit number you can set it out like this:
Sometimes, a number does not divide into another number exactly.
In this case, we can either give the answer as a whole number along with a remainder, or we can give the answer as a decimal. The decimal answer may be a terminating decimal or a recurring decimal. Often, decimal answers may be rounded to a required number of decimal places.

We write this with an for 'remainder', so it looks like this:
Method 2 - decimal answer, rounded to decimal place.
(correct to decimal place).
This method is called short division.
