**Let's just dive right in and do one! I'm going to go really slowly and I'll show each step. After you see a few examples, it's going to start making sense!**

**The first thing we do is change the way the problem is written... **

**The first math step is to look at that first number of the guy we are dividing into... that 6. This is the division step!**

**We want to see how **

many times 2 will go into 6... 2 goes into 6 three times, right? So, we put that 3 right above the 6: **That wasn't hard at all, was it?**

**Here's the second step... This is the multiplication step! **

**Multiply the 3 and the 2 and put the answer right under the 6:** **Here's the third step... This is the subtraction step!**

**Do the subtraction...**

That's 6%Proxy-Connection: keep-alive

**Division, then multiplication, then subtraction.**

Let's call it the DMS loop!

Hey, those letters go alphabetically!! You can use that to remember it!

**OK, now we're going to do the exact same thing, but with a different number... **

**First thing: **

Drag the 8 down. **Now, let's go back into our division, multiplication, subtraction loop using the 8!**

**Division:** **We want to see how **

many times 2 will go into 8... 2 goes into 8 four times... So, we put that 4 right above the 8:

**Multiplication:** **Multiply the 4 and the 2 and put the answer right under the 8:**

**Subtraction:** **That's 8 - 8 = 0**

**Guess what? We are DONE! (No way.) WAY!**

**We used the 6 and the 8...**

and we ended with a 0

at the bottom...

Which I made into a "happy

face" because I was so

happy to be done!**The answer is 34.**

**So, we do our DMS loop (division-multiplication-subtraction) until we use all the numbers in the guy we are dividing into (that guy is officially called the dividend). **

**We have two ways to check whether our answer is right or not:**

**1)** **Grab a calculator and do 68 divided by 2.** **2)** **Use multiplication! Remember that division and multiplication go together... They undo each other! So, 34 x 2 should = 68! This is great practice for you.** **Let's do a bunch more... Go to the next page to do another one!**

many times 2 will go into 6... 2 goes into 6 three times, right? So, we put that 3 right above the 6:

That's 6%Proxy-Connection: keep-alive Cache-Control: max-age=0 /font> - 6 = 0
