Look carefully at this calculator method for finding the quotient and remainder when you carry out a division.

**Example**

792 ÷ 26

Divide 792 by 26 on your calculator.

Your answer is 30.46153846.....

Subtract the whole number(quotient), 30, to leave the decimal part, 0.461538460.....

*DO NOT COPY DOWN THE DECIMAL PART AND RE-ENTER IT. This will lead to inaccuracies.*

Now multiply the decimal remainder by 26 to give the whole number remainder of 12.

So 792 ÷ 26 = 30 remainder 12

(30 is the quotient and 12 is the remainder)
