Use long division to divide a multi-digit number by a one-digit number.

**Step 1:** Write the divisor to the left of the long division symbol, and write the dividend under the long division symbol.

**Step 2:** The first digit of the dividend, 3, is less than the divisor, 4, so divide the first two digits of the dividend by the divisor (31 ÷ 4 = 7 R3). Write the 7 in the hundreds place of the

quotient.

**Step 3:** Bring down the next digit in the dividend, 7, and divide

(37 ÷ 4 = 9 R1). Write the 9 in the tens place of the

quotient.

**Step 4:** Bring down the next digit in the dividend, 6, and divide

(16 ÷ 4 = 4). Write the 4 in the ones place of the

quotient.
