what is the simplest way to do long division??

(I copied it from https://questioncove.com/users/whyjustwhy#/updates/655653f47d66da87adda7800) The easiest way to do long division is by using the traditional method. First, write the dividend (the number being divided) and the divisor (the number dividing the dividend) in a long division format. Then, divide the first digit of the dividend by the divisor and write the quotient (the result of the division) above the dividend. Multiply the quotient by the divisor and place the product below the first digit of the dividend. Subtract the product from the first digit of the dividend and bring down the next digit of the dividend. Repeat the process until all the digits of the dividend have been brought down and the remainder is zero or less than the divisor. The final result will be the quotient with any remainder written as a fraction or decimal.
