Does anyone know of a package or macro that handles decimal long division? For example, I want to convert 3/8 to a decimal and show all of the steps. I found a macro for longdiv that works great for integers, but was wondering if anyone knew of something that worked with decimals. If this doesn't exist yet, how would I go about writing something to do this? Thanks!
