3 Next you see how many times 7 can go into 14. Since it goes in 2 times you put the 2 over the 4 because you divided into 14 not 1.

4 Subtract your answer from 14. In this case your answer is 14 so when you subtract your answer will be 0.

5 Next you bring down the 7. Write it next to the 0.

6 Divide the brought down 7 into the devisor 7. Put your answer above the problem where the 2 is.

7 Multiply the divisor 7 by the 1. Then put the answer (7) under the brought down 7.

8 Then subtract the 7 from the 7. In this case what ever your answer is it would be the remainder. But since the answer is 0 there wouldn't be a remainder.

9 This is what you just did!
