Divisor must be greater than 10000/308 ie 33 or more

425 is less than 100*9 = 900 so the first digit of the quotient cannot be in the hundreds (or higher) place. 425 is greater than (or equal to) 10*9 = 90 so the first digit of the quotient cannot be in the units (or lower) place. That only leaves the tens place.

Divide 713 by 5, and the remainder in that division is the Units (50) digit. Take the quotient (without the remainder) and divide by 5. The remainder in this division is the Fives (51) digit. Continue dividing until the quotient is less tan 5 and that digit will be the leftmost digit. 713/5 = 142 and rem 3 so 50 digit = 3 142/5 = 28 and rem 2 so 51 digit = 2 28/5 = 5 and rem 3 so 52 digit = 3 5/5 = 1 and rem 0 so 53 digit = 0 and last quotient, 1 < 5 so stop with leftmost digit = 1. Then 71310 = 103235

To look at the numbers in the division problem

Yes, that's true.

The quotient is the result of dividing two numbers. So a two digit quotient is simply an answer to a division problem that ends up being 2 digits. For instance, 100 divided by 10 give a two digit quotient of 10. Or 480 / 32, which gives a two digit quotient of 15.

Short division is a method of dividing numbers where the quotient is written above the division line, the divisor is written outside the division box, and the dividend is written inside the box. The division is done digit by digit, from left to right, to find the quotient and remainder.

Ignoring digits after the decimal point, if the number of digits in the numerator is at least two more than the number of digits in the denominator then the quotient is greater than 10.If the number of digits is only one more, then the first digit of the numerator must be greater than the first digit if the denominator. If they are the same, then the second digit of the N must be greater than the second digit of the D. If they are the same, compare the third digits and so on.Other wise, the quotient is not greater than 10.For example, you can multiply the divisor by 10 (just add a zero, if it's a whole number), and check whether the divident is greater than that, or not.

It does not have to be. 864/2 = 432. The first digit of the quotient is not in the tens place.

You just continue to do the division, until you calculate the third digit after the decimal point. Then you round.
