To divide 96 by 8, you can follow these steps:

Step 1: Write down the division problem: 96 ÷ 8.

Step 2: Divide the first digit of the dividend (96) by the divisor (8). In this case, 9 ÷ 8 = 1. Write down the quotient above the division bar, on the right.

1 ← quotient

96 ÷ 8

Step 3: Multiply the divisor (8) by the quotient (1). In this case, 8 × 1 = 8.

96 ÷ 8

Step 4: Subtract the result obtained in step 3 from the first digit of the dividend (96). In this case, 9 - 8 = 1. Write down the result below the line.
