Shoutout to @PhilipMannering for helping me complete this challenge! Not easy for sure...

My solution is pretty similar to the others, except I also implemented it with the Generate Rows tool for a no-macro solution (just for fun!) Thanks for submitting the challenge, @patrick_digan!

Like many others, I implemented long division.


Outer workflow (non-macro and macro solutions):

@kelly_gilbert Very cool generate rows solutions. Reminds me of the AdventOfCode type solutions!

@patrick_digan, yes, I totally learned that trick (from either you or @jdunkerley79) during Advent of Code 2019 😄

Hahahah... It's really not... "Hint: It's not 1,000,460,202,682,230,000 with remainder -442"

This one was the first answer that I got.... 😰

Really tough one, had to scratch the head intensely as I am not that good in macros yet. But finally got it after writing all the steps in excel 😬

I know I could follow @Maskell_Rascal 's Python tool with an R big int package but the iterative macro is kind of fun.
