ANNOUNCEMENT: After about 20 years of operation the SU IT people told me I had to shut down all my cgi-scripts, including this one. "Security risk", they say. Thank you, hackers, for all the enhancements you've brought to our lives.
When I was in 4th grade the teacher made us work endless examples of the long-division algorithm. With the advent of calculators I fear the use of this algorithm is fast becoming a lost art. So that future generations may understand how we suffered, this form will run a cgi-script that solves, in complete detail, any desired long-division problem.
Fill in the form below and select "Deliver Submission" when you are satisfied. Both divisor and dividend must be positive integers, but they can be enormously long -- up to at least 4096 characters apiece. Bear in mind that very long examples may word wrap and not look pretty. This is your browser's problem, not mine.
