### How to Divide with 2 Digit Divisors?

The process to Divide by 2-Digit Divisors is shown in the below section. Read and know the procedure to divide with 2 digit divisors from here.

- Take any number with 3 or more digits as the dividend and then take a two-digit number as the divisor.
- Write the dividend inside the division symbol and the 2-digit divisor outside the symbol.
- First, consider two digits of the dividend from the left.
- Write the quotient and remainder of the two-digit dividend and then take another two-digit dividend and write the quotient and remainder.
- Subtract the result from the digit.
- Repeat the process.

### Examples on 2-Digit Divisors with Answers

Let us consider some examples to know how to Divide by 2-Digit Divisors.

**Example: 1**

Divide 1683 ÷ 99

**Solution:**

Divisor (99) has two digits. We will divide by 2-digit divisors.

99 > 16

So we will consider 3 digits (168).

99 × 1 = 99

Now subtract 168 – 99 = 69

Write the remainder in the next step.

Now write 3 to the right. It becomes 693.

99 × 7 = 693.

Now subtract 693 and 693 = 0

So, the remainder is 0.

**Example: 2**

Divide 196 ÷ 12

**Solution:**

Divisor (12) has two digits. We will divide by 2-digit divisors.

12 < 19

So we will consider 2 digits (19).

12 × 1 = 12

Now subtract 19 – 12 = 7

Write the remainder in the next step.

Now write 6 to the right. It becomes 76.

12 × 6 = 72

Now subtract 76 and 72 = 4

So, the remainder is 4.

**Example: 3**

Divide 1170 ÷ 10

**Solution:**

Divisor (10) has two digits. We will divide by 2-digit divisors.

10 < 11

So we will consider 2 digits (11).

10 × 1 = 10

Now subtract 11 – 10 = 1

Write the remainder in the next step.

Now write 7 to the right. It becomes 17.

10 × 1 = 10

Now subtract 17 and 10 = 7

Now take 0 to the right. It becomes 70

10 × 7 = 70

So, the remainder is 0.

**Example: 4**

Divide 1260 ÷ 12

**Solution:**

Divisor (12) has two digits. We will divide by 2-digit divisors.

12 = 12

So we will consider 2 digits (11).

12 × 1 = 12

Now subtract 12 – 12 = 0

Write the remainder in the next step.

Now write 6 to the right. It becomes 06.

Write the remainder in the next step.

Now take 0 to the right. It becomes 60

12 × 5 = 60

So, the remainder is 0.

**Example: 5**

Divide 1792 ÷ 16

**Solution:**

Divisor (16) has two digits. We will divide by 2-digit divisors.

16 < 17

So we will consider 2 digits (17).

16 × 1 = 16

Now subtract 17 – 16 = 1

Write the remainder in the next step.

Now write 9 to the right. It becomes 19.

16 × 1 = 16

Now subtract 19 and 16 = 3

Now take 2 to the right. It becomes 32

16 × 2 = 32

So, the remainder is 0.
