Computers and pocket calculators can accurately perform divisions in a fraction of a second. I know it is possible to perform simple division by repeated subtractions, but via this method you end up with a remainder, which is inaccurate in terms of decimal precision. So... how do calculators and computers without floating point systems get an accurate decimal answer to a division calculation?
