## since 832 >= 400, 832/400 > 1, and the 1st digit is in the hundreds position

217 < 700, but 217 >= 70, so 1st digit of quotient is in the tens position.

## To determine the position of the first digit of the quotient in a division problem, you need to divide the dividend (the number being divided) by the divisor (the number you are dividing by). Here's how you can find the position of the first digit in the quotient for both of the examples given:

1. For 832/4:
Divide 832 by 4:
- Determine how many times the divisor (4) can go into the first digit without exceeding it.
In this case, 4 can go into 8 exactly 2 times. So, the first digit of the quotient is 2.
Therefore, the position of the first digit of the quotient in 832/4 is at the ones place.

2. For 217/7:
Divide 217 by 7:
- Determine how many times the divisor (7) can go into the first digit without exceeding it.
In this case, 7 cannot go into 2 at all because 2 is smaller than 7.
In such cases, the first digit of the quotient is a 0 or remains empty.
Therefore, the position of the first digit of the quotient in 217/7 is at the tens place.

In summary, the first digit of the quotient can be found by dividing the first digit of the dividend by the divisor and considering the position of the digit in the quotient.
