How do you divide with remainders?

You divide when there is a remainder the same as you divide when there is none. The only difference is that when you divide the last digit in the dividend, you will wither add a decimal point and 0 to the right of the digit and keep dividing, designate the leftover number as a remainder, or you will put the remainder over the divisor to show the remainder as a fraction. For example: 761 divided by 10 is 76 with a remainder of 1. You can write 76 R1, 76 1/10 or 76.1
