Dividing Very Large Numbers
Hello all, this is my first post on this forum, and probably not my last.
I would like to break down the process of dividing very large numbers so that I can write a computer program to help divide very large numbers. I have some idea about how the program portion would work, the part that I am struggling with is the actually math involved with doing such a large calculation.
I was thinking of doing some sort of brute force style calculation by breaking up the numbers into sections and then trying to the calculation in parts.
Example: 200+ digit number divide by a 50+ digit number. I was thinking of starting with first 50+ digits of the 200+dn then looping through the next 150+ digits in a kind of computer version of long division.
Does this sound crazy, because I can't seem to figured out the programming portion and I think it's because I don't understand the math enough.
Thanks for the help!
Let me know if something doesn't make sense.

Please ignore. I will post in a more appropriate group. I just realized this was for middle school and elementary math. Sorry.
