1.6 Division 2 Example 1:7 doesnt divide into 2. Does 7 divide into 25? Yes, 3 times. Write it directly above the 5. 3 Multiply and write it below the dividend. 2 1 Draw a line and subtract. Then bring down the next number. 4 6 Continue the process. How many times does 7 divide into 46? 6 times. Write it above in the quotient. 6 Multiply and write it below the new dividend. 4 2 Draw a line and subtract. Then bring down the next number (if there was one). 4 Answer: 36 R 4 Answer: 53 Your Turn Problem #1 Find the quotient of 636 and 12.

1.6 Division 3 Example 2: Divide 31 by 15. Write it directly above the 1. 2 Multiply and write it below the dividend. 3 0 Draw a line and subtract. Then bring down the next number. 1 2 Continue the process. How many times does 15 divide into 12? It doesnt. Write a zero above in the quotient and then bring down the next number. Multiply and write it below the new dividend. 1 2 0 Draw a line and subtract. 5 Answer: 208 R 5 Answer: 405 R 4 Your Turn Problem #2 Find the quotient of 5,269 and 13. How many times does 15 divide into 125? Answer: 8 80 5

1.6 Division 5 Average The average of a set of numbers is the sum of the numbers divided by the number of addends. Example 4. A student received scores of 72, 87, and 54. Find the average of the scores. Solution: Add the scores, then divide by 3. 72 +87 +54 = 213, Then: 213 3 =71. Answer: The students average is 71. Lori has 4 math tests with scores of 76, 85, 92, and 91. Find the average of all four tests. Your Turn Problem #4 Answer: Loris average is 86. The End
