Then we discussed:

"If you want to check your division quotient to make sure it is correct, what would you do?"

"I'd multiply."

"Tell me what to do, and I'll check our quotient."

"Multiply 993 times 7."

"Okay, so that is only 6,951, so I guess we made a mistake."

"Nope, you have to add the remainder of 6 to that answer and then you'll have 6,957. So we know that I am correct."

My point is that by only looking at one problem, we reviewed how to do a long division problem with a remainder, reviewed how to check your answer, and realized that sometimes I won't be choosing from a list of answers- that I will need to enter my answer into 2 boxes (computer format).
