Division of whole numbers This presentation covers the basic division of whole numbers A gradual series of steps of increased complexity covers the process, from simple divisions to divisions with remainders The last few slides use 2 everyday situations as an introduction to interpreting the remainders

Example 1: 69 ÷ 3 69 divided by 3? 69 shared between 3? How many lots of 3 in 69? CALCULATOR69 ÷ 3 SPREADSHEET= 69 / 3 PEN AND PAPER 369

69 ÷ 3... The set up TU 369 1 2 3

69 ÷ 3... Sharing the Tens Each bucket has 2 Tens There are 2 lots of 3 in 6 3 goes 2 times into 6 TU 369 1 2 3 2

69 ÷ 3... Sharing the Units Each bucket has 3 Units TU 369 1 2 3 23 There is nothing left over 69 ÷ 3 = 23

Example 2: 75 ÷ 3 75 divided by 3? 75 shared between 3? How many lots of 3 in 75? CALCULATOR75 ÷ 3 PEN AND PAPER SPREADSHEET=75 / 3 375

75 ÷ 3... The set up TU 375 1 2 3

75 ÷ 3... Sharing the Tens TU 375 1 2 3 Each bucket has 2 Tens There is 1 Ten left over... Break down the Ten into Units 2 1

75 ÷ 3... Sharing the Units TU 375 1 2 3 2 1 Each bucket has 5 Units 5 There is nothing left over 75 ÷ 3 = 25

Example 3: 12 ÷ 4 12 divided by 4? 12 shared between 4? How many lots of 4 in 12? CALCULATOR12 ÷ 4 PEN AND PAPER SPREADSHEET=12 / 4 412

12 ÷ 4... The set up TU 412 1 2 3 4

12 ÷ 4... Sharing the Tens TU 412 1 2 3 4 We don’t have enough Tens to put one in each bucket... So there are 0 Tens in each bucket There is 1 Ten left over... 0 1 Break down the left over Ten into Units

12 ÷ 4... Sharing the Units TU 412 1 2 3 4 There are 3 Units in each bucket 0 1 3 There is nothing left over 12 ÷ 4 = 3

Example 4: 208 ÷ 2 208 divided by 2? 208 shared between 2? How many lots of 2 in 208? CALCULATOR208 ÷ 2 PEN AND PAPER SPREADSHEET=208 / 2 2208

208 ÷ 2... The set up HTU 2208 1 2

208 ÷ 2... Sharing the Hundreds HTU 2208 1 2 There is 1 Hundred in each bucket 1

208 ÷ 2... Sharing the Tens HTU 2208 1 2 There are no Tens to share... 1 There are 0 Tens in each bucket 0 We need to write in the 0 to hold the Tens’ place

208 ÷ 2... Sharing the Units HTU 2208 1 2 There are 4 Units in each bucket 104 There is nothing left over 208 ÷ 2 = 104

Checkpoint 1 Try the following divisions: 1.24 ÷ 2 2.36 divided by 3 3.5 85 4.How many 4s in 48? 5.99 / 9 6.52 ÷ 4 7.510 divided by 5

Division with remainders All the divisions we have seen so far have no units left over Sometimes after doing the division there are some units left over These left over units are called the remainder The process is the same but, at the end, we write an “r” (for remainder) followed by the number of units left over

Example 5: 67 ÷ 3 67 divided by 3? 67 shared between 3? How many lots of 3 in 67? CALCULATOR67 ÷ 3 SPREADSHEET= 67 / 3 PEN AND PAPER 367

67 ÷ 3... The set up TU 367 1 2 3

67 ÷ 3... Sharing the Tens Each bucket has 2 Tens There are 2 lots of 3 in 6 3 goes 2 times into 6 TU 367 1 2 3 2

67 ÷ 3... Sharing the Units Each bucket has 2 Units TU 367 1 2 3 22 There is one unit left over (remainder 1) 67 ÷ 3 = 22 r1 r1

Checkpoint 2 Try the following divisions: 1.25 ÷ 2 2.34 divided by 3 3.5 87 4.How many 4s in 47? 5.91 / 9 6.54 ÷ 4 7.512 divided by 5

About the remainders The meaning and interpretation of the remainder depends on the situation Sometimes you need to round up to the next whole number to find the correct answer to a division problem Other times, you need to ignore the remainder to find the correct answer Whether you do one thing or the other depends on the type of problem

Interpreting remainders 18 friends are going to a partyA taxi can take only 4 people How many taxis do they need? 18 ÷ 4 = 4 r2 4 full taxis 2 more people waiting… They need another taxi! 12345 ANSWER: 5 taxis

Interpreting remainders DVDs cost £7 eachYou have £19 How many DVDs can you buy? 19 ÷ 7 = 2 r5 2 DVDs £5 left over… Not enough for another DVD! ANSWER: 2 DVDs

Interpreting remainders In the first example, we rounded the result to the next whole number to find the answer (5 taxis) In the second example we ignored the remainder to find the answer (2 DVDs) To find a few more problems on interpreting remainders try the worksheet “Division – Interpreting Remainders”
