How many times does 2 fit into 5? How much is left over?

How many (negative!) times does 2 fit into -5? How much is left over?

Note: long division with remainder is almost obsolete once you know about fractions and decimals, you might use it later on for different purposes other than dividing regular numbers

Remember, long division is a method of dividing, not an operation used in equations or expressions, like "/" or "×."

So when we divide -5 by 2, we
do it the same way as when we divide 5 by 2, except that we negate the answer.

**-5 divided by 2 is -2 remainder -1**

Dividend=

Divisor×Quotient+Remainder

-5=2×(-2)+(-1)

-5=-4+(-1)
