(George Joseph, The Crest of the Peacock, 2000, pp. 61-66) Doubles of 29 Doubles of 1 58 116 232 464 928 2 4 8 16 32 Double the divisor (29) until you go past the dividend (696). Find doubles of 29 that sum to 696: 232 + 464 = 696. Then sum the corresponding doubles of 1: 8 + 16 = 24. So, 696 divided by 29 is 24. a. Divide 4050 by 225 with this method.
