## Binary Division

Binary division is one of the most complicated mathematical operations to complete when learning binary arithmetic. The binary division process includes a process of long division that requires you to carefully handle remainders, deal with tricky notation, and becomes harder when detailing with large numbers. Therefore manual binary division is a tricky concept to become an expert at.

## Why use a Binary Division Calculator?

Using a binary division calculator like the one above can help you master the difficult binary division process. By checking your work with a proven calculator like the one above you can make sure that you are getting your division calculations correct.

## How to use the Binary Division Calculator

Follow these simple steps to complete and solve your binary division problem:

- Enter the dividend (the number to be divided) into the top input box.
- Enter the divisor (the number to divide the dividend by) into the second box.
- Click the “Calculate” button and let BinaryTables do the heavy lifting of the calculations for you.
- The result will be displayed (in binary and decimal) below the “Calculate” button
- If the result is not a whole number (an integer) then the result will include both the quotient and remainder.

Note: all inputs must be in binary!

## Binary Division Rules

Rember these four simple rules when dividing basic binary numbers:

- 0 / 1 = 0
- 1 / 1 = 1
- 0 / 0 = null, undefined or impossible
- 1 / 0 = null, undefined or impossible

These can be simplified into three rules if you rember that nothing can be divided by zero.
