Division Calculations

Knowing your times tables is very useful when dividing – since division is the inverse of multiplication.  For simpler questions, you may want to use certain mental methods when dividing.

Example 1:

If you’re dividing by slightly difficult number, you can break it down to make it easier.

Let’s say that the question is 112 ÷ 14

14 might be difficult to divide by mentally but, we know that 2 x 7 = 14. So, what we can do is divide 112 by 2 first, which is 56. Then we can divide 56 by 7 which is 8.

By breaking it down, the question became much easier and we now know that 112 ÷ 14 = 8.

If a number doesn’t divide completely, you may end up with a remainder at the end. For example, 12÷ 5 wouldn’t fit fully so the answer would be 2 remainder 2, because 2 fives fit into 12 with 2 left over.

With decimals, the way to divide is very similar to the method used in multiplication. You multiply it by 10 or 100 to get a whole number, do the division, then divide your answer by what you multiplied in the beginning.

Example 2:

Let’s say our question is 5.4 ÷ 9

We multiply 5.4 by 10 to get 54.

54 ÷ 9 = 6

We then divide 6 by 10 to get 0.6     à    5.4 ÷ 9 = 0.6

For more complicated division questions, you might want to use a written method such as long division. This involves subtracting multiples of the number you are dividing by.

Example 3:

Let’s say the question is 476 ÷ 19. This is how it would look in long division style.

1) Circle the question which have the answer 3

18÷6                 27÷9                      44÷11

21÷3                       45÷9

2) Add in the missing value

72÷= 6

3) Laura writes a number on paper.She tells James to attend at guessing the number she gives him clue saying. If i divide the number by 9 if equals 13.

What is the number on the paper?

4)

1328 ÷ 4 =

5) 7 × 28 = 196

Use this to calculate 196 ÷ 28 =

6) At a supermarket, a bag can carry a maximum of 6 items. There are 72 items. How many bags can Robert fill?

7) Sams tutor has challenged him to work out

288÷16        288÷2=144            144÷18=8

How can use these two expressions to calculate the answer.

8) A cricket club is travelling to match. there are 17 people on the team.Each can carry 4 people.How many caws will we need?

9) Write the missing signs.

54 ÷9 = 36 ÷

1 2 3 4 5 6
