The algorithm of division based on multiplication is well known -. It permits utilization of fast multiply hardware in the implementation of division. The algorithm defines an iterative process in which numerator and denominator are both multiplied by the same factor m<inf>i</inf>such that the denominator converges to 1 and the numerator to the quotient. Convergence can be speeded up by find
