Script that breaks down a division problem into a series of easier steps.

## Project description

This script can be used as library to split division it to simple steps or as console script to visualise division.

Example usage as command line script:

$python3 -m longdivision 1/3 _1 / 3 = 0.3333 0 <- 0 * 3 - _10 9 <- 3 * 3 -- _10 9 <- 3 * 3 -- _10 9 <- 3 * 3 -- _10 9 <- 3 * 3 -- 1$ python3 -m longdivision 6359/17
_6359 / 17 = 374.0588
51  <- 3 * 17
--
_125
119  <- 7 * 17
---
_69
68  <- 4 * 17
--
_10
0  <- 0 * 17
--
_100
85  <- 5 * 17
---
_150
136  <- 8 * 17
---
_140
136  <- 8 * 17
---
4

Example usage as library:

>>> import longdivision
>>> list(longdivision.divide_integer_part(5, 2))
[(5, 4, 2, 1)]
>>> list(longdivision.divide_integer_part(1, 3))
[(1, 0, None, 1)]
>>> list(longdivision.divide_fractional_part(1, 3))
[(10, 9, 3), (10, 9, 3), (10, 9, 3), (10, 9, 3)]
divide_integer_part

Iterates over all division steps providing reminder, quotient, result_digit, numerator_position.

divide_fractional_part

iterates over fractional part. Each iteration returns same results as divide_integer_part escape last numerator_position. Reminder argument for this function must be taken from last divide_integer_part iteration.
