**divisor**below. - Division was accomplished by multiplying the
**divisor**until the dividend was reached; the answer being the number of times the**divisor**was so multiplied. - To divide by a mixed number, when the quotient is seen to be large, it usually saves time to express the
**divisor**as either a simple fraction or a decimal of a unit of one of the denominations. - In short division the
**divisor**and the quotient are placed respectively on the left of and below the dividend, and the partial products and remainders are not shown at all. - In long division the
