I believe so.
I've seen code for a 68000 to do division of 32 bit values when the chip
only provides for division of 16 bit values. So the same approach should
apply for extending an 8 bit divide to provide 16 bit division.
The book I have this in attributes the algorith to a Dr. Arthur Norman.
Section 5.8 & 5.9, page 99 in the actual printed book.
