Lesson 2: Division

# Dividing by 2-digits: 9815÷65

In this math lesson, we learn the process of dividing large numbers, specifically 9,815 divided by 65. The technique involves estimation, multiplication, and subtraction to find the quotient. By following these steps, we discover that the result is 151. Created by Sal Khan.

• At , can't you just round 331 to 340 since you rounded 65 up to 70?
• You technically could to try to get the approximate answer, but you'd want to round down to 330 since it's closer. However, this strategy will not get you the correct answer, just an approximation/estimate, that will help you find and check your answer.
• you said 2-2 is 1 it is 0
• go easy on him, he made like almost all the math ka videos without going mad.
• Is there any easier way to work division? or is this the only way?
• Actually, there are several ways to do division, I usually use multiplication to help me.
• what would happend if your mom had two bananas then drop 7 how many do she have?
• This is not a practical example that you provided, but the mathematical answer would be -5 bananas.
• Ha i still did not understand
• that is not good i fill so bad for u right ow that is so sad for u not to get it
• i don't understand how he is so confident that he is right. And how IS he always right. its a mystery...
• Everyone makes mistakes. Even Sal Khan makes mistakes... There are videos that have correction boxes posted on them. As you get more practice, you make less mistakes. So, just keep practicing and learning.
• My process 9815/65 = z
changed to 9000/60 first number above division sign 1 , 9000 - 6000 = 3000
next number 5, 3000 - 3000 = 0
now the art
60 x 150 = 9750
60 x 151 = 9815
9815/65 = 151
Simple Quick and Effective
Wish I could show it the way it looks on my paper much cleaner looking than the above.
• What I want to know is how you get the numbers at the top of the divisor? When you carry, where does the numbers that you carry come from?
