Do you mean that whoever can figure out 100/8 in their head or just whoever does it the same way like long division on the paper?

Just asking since I assume pretty much everybody can figure out 100/8 in their head (whatever way they do it), including DS5 and I don't think it kills his math intuition by any means.
