Quotient with a remainder

What is 33 divided by 7 ?

● 33 is not multiple of 7.
● The closest multiple we can get is 7 x 4 = 28.
● So we write 4 in the one's place as the quotient.
● Then we put 28 below 33( or the dividend), and subtract it.
        33 - 28 = 5
        we are left with 5.
● The remainder is 5.
● So we write the Remainder 5 next to the Quotient 4, like
