### What is 8655 ÷ 5?

• Long division calculations are laid out like this.
• First we work out how many times 5 goes into 8.

### What is 8655 ÷ 5?

• 5 goes into 8 one time.
• We write 1 on the top.

### What is 8655 ÷ 5?

• The remainder is 8 - 5 = 3.
• We carry the 3 across.

### What is 8655 ÷ 5?

• Now we work out how many times 5 goes into 36.

### What is 8655 ÷ 5?

• 5 goes into 36 seven times.
• We write 7 on the top.

### What is 8655 ÷ 5?

• The remainder is 36 - 35 = 1.
• We carry the 1 across.

### What is 8655 ÷ 5?

• Now we work out how many times 5 goes into 15.

### What is 8655 ÷ 5?

• 5 goes into 15 three times.
• We write 3 on the top.

### What is 8655 ÷ 5?

• The remainder is 15 - 15 = 0.

### What is 8655 ÷ 5?

• We now work out how many times 5 goes into 5.

### What is 8655 ÷ 5?

• 5 goes into 5 once.
