Dividing a 3 Digit Number by a 1 Digit Number For Example: 895 ÷ 5 Using Long Division For more maths help visit: www.y6maths.blogspot.com

First put the large number inside the division bar and the smaller number outside For Example: 895 ÷ 5 8 9 55

Now try to divide the number in the hundreds column (8) by 5: In this case, the closest multiple of 5 is: 1 x 5 = 5 8 9 55 The 1 is placed in the hundreds column directly above the 8 1 The 5 from 1 x5 = 5 goes directly below the 8 -5-5 3 The remainder, the difference between 5 & 8, goes under the 5 The number from the tens column is then dropped down next to the 3 9

Now try to divide this new number (39) by 5: In this case, the closest multiple of 5 is: 7 x 5 = 35 8 9 55 The 7 is placed directly above the 9, in the TENS column 1 The 35 from 7 x5 = 35 goes directly below the 39 -5-5 3 The remainder, the difference between 39 & 35, goes under the 35 The number from the units column is then dropped down next to the 4 9 7 -3 5 45

Now try to divide this new number (45) by 5: In this case, 9 x 5 = 4 5 8 9 55 The 9 is placed directly above the 5, in the UNITS column 1 The 45 from 9 x5 = 45 goes directly below the 45 -5-5 3 In this question there is no remainder, 9 7 -3 5 45 9 -4 5 0 so 895 ÷ 5 = 179 For more maths help visit: www.y6maths.blogspot.com
