I'm a newbie in math and while doing some exercises and reviewing basic operations I got myself thinking about something that is funny, at least.
If you want to divide, let's say, 13570 by 14 what you should do is: start by taking 1 and see if you can divide it by 14. Since you can't, you take the next number which is 3 making 13, also not divisible by 14. Then, you take the next one making 135 which is divisible by 14.
The next step is the one that I would like to know a better solution. You have literally to guess how many times 14 fits in 135 before you can proceed. In this case it would be 9 with 8 as a reminder which would be taken to the next number so you can proceed.
So, is there a way that we can solve this without this "guessing"?
