    Can anyone remember how to do long divisions?

    I could tell you how to solve an equasion with two unknowns but I forgot how to do a long division


    I seem to be forgetting a lot of things I learnt in primary school

    Just about!

    If you don't end up with a zero at the bottom, then that's the remainder.

    I've never done anything like long division.
    looks interesting though, I was good at woodchop & Drama
    The idiosyncratic syntax of riddles interests me

    I remember all that shit like it was yesterday.

    It might be because my high school focused so hard on math and science.

    Pythagorean Theorem (sp?)
    SAS
    the quadratic equation AX(superscript2) + BX + C = 0
    all angles in triangles equal 180 degrees
    logarithms
    sine, cosine, tangent
    hypotenuse
    blah,blah,blah

    yet I don't use that shit on a daily basis. I used to love math.

    I did get a D one quarter in Calculus (but ended with a B). I was rarely their.

    I didn't wanna go to that fucking school. I wanted to go to a perfroming arts school.

    I'm curious as to when folks learned long division.

    Now it's being taught in the 2nd and 3rd grade on the regular (sometimes 1st) here.

    ...well you can keep going and that's what goes before the decimal point.
