This web page shows all the steps in doing a long division problem. Unlike many sites, it doesn’t just do the integral part, stop, and show a remainder. It computes decimals places until they repeat.

This is an alternative method of doing division that some people really like; => no guessing, => doesn’t require knowing your multiplication facts, => more intuitive, => online calculator shows you how to do it.
