Chapter 1 - Whole Numbers - 1.6 Long Division - 1.6 Exercises - Page 60: 9


7134 R 12

Work Step by Step

21 is larger than 14, so the first step in the long division will be to divide 21 into 149. The quotient of $149 \div 21$ will therefore be placed over the 9 in 149826. Since there must be a digit in the quotient placed above each digit in the dividend, the quotient for $149826 \div 21$ will be a 4 digit answer, with one digit over the 9, another digit over the 8, another digit over the 2 and another digit over the 6. Since 7134 R 12 is the only 4 digit answer given, 7134 R 12 is the correct answer choice.
