## How do you solve a 3 digit division problem?

Divide the dividend’s first number (which is 3 in our example) by the divisor’s first number (1). 3 divided by 1 is 3. Then, we multiply our divisor (125) by 3 and see that it fits in (in other words, that it’s less than) the dividend’s 3 numbers. So, we place the result underneath the dividend’s 3 digits and subtract.

Can you divide 3 digit numbers?

There are two ways to divide a number with three digits by a number with one digit: long division and short division. Both ways involve the dividend, or the number inside the bracket, and the divisor, or the number on the outside of the bracket. Either way will give you the same correct answer.
