Just in the very standard way. Suppose a process has (only) 150usecs of computation to perform, before it exits. When it first gets on to the CPU it runs for the time-quantum of 100usecs, then it is kicked-off the CPU. It eventually returns to the CPU for its remaining 50usecs of computation, then it exits.
