Use the Search function at the top of the T2T page and search for the

Long Division.  The tenth one that pops up has two web sites by me
that show long divison.

Then Search for European Long Division.  In that one, there is a topic
re short division.  Short division can be helpful. 

I have a book that shows this method for those who know short

Divide 12726 by 63 (63=9x7)

Divide 12726 by 9.  The quotient is 1414

Divide 1414 by 7.  The quotient is 202.
