    I can give 2 hints:
    1) Consider Integer.parseInt(). You can't use it for a whole string, but you can use it for a tiny part of string
    2) Try a simple division by yourself on a sheet of paper. Say, 3354/43. Try identifying recursive patterns in the process. Recursion is a key to this problem.

    BigInteger Integer and int are three different things.
    Not much can be said without a clear description of the rules
    If all else fails paste the instructions to your assignment with your question
