Hello Stephen, It is really interesting. I had no idea that there were so many ways to do the division. The whole list is automatically doubled if you omit the step of writing the "auxiliary products". For example, in Spain we do not use to write them. See attached image. So maybe it should be a way to specify that.

Dear www-math participants: Can I ask you to please spend about 30 seconds participating in a mathematical survey? It might even be interesting to you. The 3rd edition of MathML will include elements to portray certain elementary arithmetic operations. In this case we want to make sure that the main variants for long division are covered. Could you please visit the link http://www.doodle.com/ibre4qknzy2bbt99 and select which method(s) you learned for long division? It would be helpful if you indicated which country you were living in at the time. Thank you, Stephen
