    I guess many of you have heard of russian multiplication. My question is, is there another algorithm that divides two number, something like russian division ??? I tried to find it myself, but i failed!
    For those of you who have forgotten or don't know it:

    54 12
    108 6
    216 3 216
    432 1 432

    54*12 = 216+432 = 648
    54/12 = ?

    You're welcome to think of it by yourselves, but i try for almost a week and yet haven't found a solution...

    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.
