Strikes me as a homework problem. Ever heard of logarithms?
Division is really repeated subtraction. Just take a base number, such as 8152 and subtract 3 from it, but add 1 to the count. When the number to subtract is less than the amount to be subtracted, stop. You have the answer and the remainder, if any. Just adding and subtracting is used.

arithmatic operations without using them..
If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
