Multiplication:
Multiply the 5 and the 3 and put the answer right under the 16:


Subtraction:
Do the subtraction... That's 16  15 = 1


First DMS loop done! Almost there!!
Set it up: Drag the 8 down.
That makes it a 18...


Now, let's go back into our DMS loop using the 18!
Division:
How many times 3 will go into 18? Three goes into 18 cleanly... six times. Put that 6 right above the 8:


Multiplication:
Multiply the 6 and the 3 and put the answer right under the 18:


Subtraction:
That's 18  18 = 0
Yeah, baby! Done!
The answer is 56.


Check it!! 56 x 3 should = 168!
