## Hex Division

Hex Division is the process of dividing hexadecimal numbers. Like binary division, hex division takes place with a numerator and denominator. While the process is similar to decimal division you likely learned in your initial schooling, it is more complicated as hexadecimal is a base-16 number system. This means that there are 16 symbols in the hexadecimal with the digits 0-9 and letters A,B,C,D,E and F. Because of these extra digits it is more complicated to keep track of everything when dividing in hexadecimal.

### How do you divide hex?

Hexadecimal division is easy once you understand the steps required to complete it.

- Step 1: Using the traditional long division format (where the divisor is placed to the left of the dividend) set up the division.
- Step 2: Divide the rightmost digit by the divisor. In the case where this digit is smaller than the divisor also include the next digits.
- Step 3: Write the result of this division above the division line.
- Step 4: Multiply the divisor by the quotient digit you just wrote. Subtract this product from the part of the dividend you are currently working with.
- Step 5: If there are still digits in the dividend, bring down the next digit to the remainder.
- Step 6: Repeat steps 2-6 moving through all digits are complete.
- Step 7: At this point, you should have your result. The quotient will be the number above the line while the remainder will be the result below the division after all subtractions have been completed.
- Step 8: Check your result with the free calculator hexadecimal division calculator above.
