The 'Galley' method of division was probably the most widely used method of division prior to the 1600s. It is called 'Galley' because, when completed, a division looks a bit like a galley (boat).
The Galley method is thought to be Hindu in origin and an early version of this method was known to be used in the ninth century by a Persian called Al-Khowarizmi. It is still taught in parts of North Africa and the Middle East today.
This is how you could work out $65284$ divided by $594$ using the Galley method:
Can you see the two numbers I started with?
What division do you think is being done here?
Can you work out the answers to the following divisions using the same method? $$2986 \div 47$$
$$76254 \div 235$$
Why does the method work?
How does this method compare with our modern methods of division?
