## 25 Division Word Problems for Grades 3 to 5 With Tips On Supporting Students’ Progress

Steven Eastes

Division word problems are important in building proficiency in division. Division is one of the bedrocks of math alongside addition, subtraction and multiplication. Therefore, students must have a deep understanding of division, its function within arithmetic and word problems, and how to apply short division and long division successfully.

Division is the mathematical process of breaking a number up into equal parts and finding out how many equal parts you can have. It may be that you have a remainder following the division or you may have no remainder, just a whole number as your answer.

## What are division word problems?

Division word problems are an extension of the arithmetic division method whereby they are word problems with division at the heart. Students are expected to use the division process to find a solution to the word problem.

Typically, word problems use a real-life or real-world scenario and students are expected to interpret what the word problem is asking and apply their division knowledge to find the answer.

Division can be introduced through grouping before advancing, in higher-grade math, to the formal long division method.

To help you with the division journey, we have put together a collection of division word problems which can be used for children between 3rd grade to 5th grade.

## Division word problems in upper elementary

As children enter 3rd grade, they begin to develop their mental and written strategies for division.

Students begin to use their multiplication and times tables knowledge to assist them when solving division problems alongside their knowledge of the corresponding division and multiplication facts.

By the end of 3rd grade, students are expected to recall their multiplication and division facts for multiplication times tables up to 10 x 10. They should also use their knowledge of place value, and known and derived facts to assist with simple division such as dividing by 1 and halving.

## Introducing partial quotients

Before learning the standard algorithm, also known as long division, students learn the partial quotients method. They practice their short division fluency to answer division word problems with whole number or integer answers, and those with a remainder.

Before entering 4th and 5th grade, students encounter division word problems and multi step problems . These use increasingly harder numbers, more than a single digit. Students move from simple division problems, such as:

‘If we have 30 students in our class and are divided into groups of 5, how many students will be in each group?’

‘If there are 56 books in our library and they are shared among 7 children, how many books would each child get?

## Introducing standard algorithm division

4th grade students work towards dividing 4 digit numbers by a one digit number using partial quotients. They must interpret remainders in the correct context and present the remainder as a decimal or fraction.

Students should also be able to divide mentally and know how to divide by 10, 100 and 1,000 and how place value works alongside dividing a number so it is 10, 100 or 1,000 times smaller.

5th grade students are introduced to the standard algorithm, or long division method. By the end of 5th grade, students should be fluent in multiplication and division, and written strategies. They must be able to apply knowledge in fraction word problems .

In addition to the 4th grade requirements, 5th grade students are expected to consolidate these formal division methods before dividing a four digit number by a two digit number using the formal method of standard algorithm division.

Again, they should understand remainders within this and present them in the correct context.

This also flows into division word problems as children must read a multi-step problem and know how to interpret it, apply their divisional knowledge and solve the problem step-by-step.

The concept of multi-step problems builds up at each stage of your state math curriculum.

## Why are word problems important for childrens’ understanding of division?

Word problems, alongside the use of concrete objects and visual representations, are important in helping children understand the complexities and possible abstract nature of division.

While children may understand that dividing results in a smaller answer, it is important to explore how division looks visually before providing them with word problem worksheets. This is the same when exploring arrays to support multiplication word problems .

## Applying math to real life situations

Word problems are important because they provide a real-life context to help children understand division and where we encounter it in real life.

Allowing children to see how division is used in everyday situations, makes it more meaningful and relevant. In turn, this develops a deeper, more well—rounded understanding of the four operations.

## Building problem solving skills

Word problems are vital to developing problem solving skills. First, students must read and understand the problem before identifying the relevant information within the contextual problem and apply their knowledge to find a solution.

This naturally builds critical thinking and a child’s reasoning ability, an important skill for any mathematician.

## Developing mathematical language skills

Finally, the importance of moving from simple division word problems to more challenging ones enhances students’ vocabulary and language skills.

For children to develop an understanding of vocabularies such as digit divisors, quotient and remainders, they must first understand these key words and apply them to the process of division and communicate clearly what they are aiming to do.

## Deepening understanding of the inverse relationship between division and multiplication

Division word problems solidify the connection between multiplication and division. Understanding these inverse operations and the ability to interchange the skills of multiplication and division will help make connections between different mathematical concepts and deepen students’ learning.

## How to teach division word problem solving in elementary school.

Having taught the concept of division to students using concrete examples, for example, grouping or sharing counters and cubes, the next step is to advance to division word problems.

As with all word problems, students must carefully read the question and decipher what is asked. Do they need to add, subtract, multiply or divide? Are they solving a multi-step problem and need to do more than one step? They may decide what operation to use and then represent it visually.

## Example of a division word problem

There are 40 pieces of candy ready to go in the party bags for Laura’s birthday. They are to be shared between 8 friends. How many pieces of candy will each child get?

## How to solve this:

- First, we need to interpret the question. Laura has invited 8 friends to her party and she has 40 pieces of candy to share equally between her friends. So we know:
- There are 40 pieces of candy in total
- They are to be divided among 8 friends in total
- Students must divide the total number of candies by the number of friends

To solve this problem we could use the partial quotient method and divide the dividend by the the divisor which would be 40 / 8.

If we do this, we would get the quotient of 5. Each friend would get 5 pieces of candy each as 40 divided by 8 is 5.

Alternatively, we could use the inverse multiplication to solve this problem. We may not know the division fact that 40 divided by 8 = 5 but if we look to the inverse we may know what number multiplied by 8 equals 40. If we did our 8 times table we would get the answer of 5 – the correct answer.

## How can we show this visually?

We could show 8 circles, each representing a child, and place a piece of candy in each circle until all 40 pieces of candy are placed equally in the circles. Each child should have 5 candies.

Students could also represent the division word problem as a bar model:

- Split the bar model into 8 sections
- Each section of the bar should have 5 pieces of candy
- Divide the 40 candies between the 8 sections

How these visual representations look:

Word problems are an important aspect of learning in Third Space Learning’s one-on-one tutoring programs.

Tutors work with students to break down word problems and identify the correct operation and strategy needed to solve the problem.

## Examples of elementary division word problems

Below are examples of what can be expected in each grade with Third Space Learning’s tutoring programs from grades 3 to 5.

Students become familiar with word problems throughout their learning. They encounter word problems regularly throughout each personalized lesson.

Scaffolded and independent practice of word problems increases students’ confidence, familiarity with vocabulary and mathematical understanding.

## 3rd grade division word problems

Word problems for 3rd grade students, particularly division word problems, should encourage:

- Recall of their times table facts
- Division of two digit numbers by one digit numbers using mental and partial quotients
- Word problems may also involve multi-step problems

## Question 1:

If a school has 90 students in 2nd grade and there are 3 classes in 2nd grade, how many students are in each class?

90 shared equally into 3 classes = 30 children per class

## Question 2:

Every day a school gets a delivery of milk in a crate. There are 96 cartons of milk in the crate. If there are 8 milk cartons in a pack, how many packs will be in the crate?

96 divided by 12 = 8.

There are 8 cartons of milk in a pack.

## Question 3:

A delivery of 96 footballs arrives at school for sports day. They are to be shared equally between 4 classes. How many footballs does each class get?

96 divided by 4 = 24 footballs per class

## Question 4:

3rd grade is going to the beach on a school trip. If there are 100 children in 3rd grade and only 10 children can go on one mini bus, how many mini buses does Mr. Pearson need to book?

100 children divided 10 = 10 mini buses.

## Question 5:

If you have 60 flowers and divide them into four flower pots, how many flowers are in each pot? Are there any left over?

Answer: 15 flowers in each pot.

If we divide 60 into 4 equal groups then we can use the partial quotient method.

When using the partial quotients method, students rely on what multiplication facts they can use.

Because we are dividing 60 by 4, we may ask ourselves, what number can I multiply 4 by, to get close to 60 without going over? Students should be familiar with their 10s time tables, and 4 x 10 = 40. We place the 10 above the quotient line, and then subtract 40 from 60, leaving 20 remaining.

We will now start the process all over again. What number can I multiply 4 by to get close to 20 without going over? We know that 4 x 5 = 20, so again, place 5 above the 10 in the quotient line and subtract 20 – 20. Because there is nothing left over, we are done dividing.

So the answer to 60 divided by 4 = 15.

This would look like:

## 4th grade division word problems

Word problems for 4th grade center around dividing a 4 digit number by a 1 digit number using the partial products method or area model method of division. They will also be introduced to remainders and be expected to interpret remainders correctly depending on the context.

Ronan has a ball of string that is 819 cm long. He cuts it into 7 equal pieces. How long is 1 piece of string?

Answer: 117cm

819 divided by 7 = 117

In upper elementary there are 1,248 colored pencils. If there are 6 classes in upper elementary, how many pencils would each class receive?

Answer: 208

We use the division method to divide 1,248 by 6 and we get 208 as the result.

Mia buys three computer games for $84. How much is one computer game?

Answer: $28.

We divide $84.00 by 3 and we get $28.00.

The area of the school hall is 1,704m and needs to be split into four quadrants. What would be the area of each quadrant?

Answer: 426m

We take the total area of the school and divide it by 4 to represent each quadrant. In doing so, we would have 426m for each quadrant.

To check this is the correct answer, we could do the inverse and multiply 426 by 4 and we would get 1,704m.

Packets of candy are put into multi packs of 4. Today, 7,800 packets of candy were packed. How many boxes of candy were packed?

Answer: 163 boxes

We then have to take the total packets of candy– 7,800 – and divide this by 4. If we do this we will get the answer 1,950 boxes were packed.

## 5th grade division word problems

Word problems for 5th grade should prepare students for the end of elementary school. Students are familiar with the concept of standard algorithm division and dividing a 4 digit number by a 2 digit number using the formal method of standard algorithm division.

A school is selling tickets at $6 each to attend the Big Christmas Fair. Over 15 weeks it has earned an amazing $9,720! On average, how many tickets were sold each week?

Answer: 108 tickets per week

First, we need to use the formal method of standard algorithm division to divide the grand total – $9,720 by 15. If we do this correctly we will have the answer 648.

Then, we need to take this answer of 648, which is how much is earned each week, and then divide this by $6, the amount each ticket is.

This will result in the number of tickets sold each week – 108 tickets.

A square sports field has a perimeter of 2.696km. How long is each side of the field?

Answer: 674m

To answer this we need to be able to convert the 2.696km into meters. There are 1000 meters in a kilometer so that would be 2,696m. Then we divide this by 4 and get 674m for one side.

Keira is given a toy blocks kit containing 2,208 individual blocks. She wants to split the toy blocks evenly between 15 friends and herself to work on making a toy block city together. How many blocks should she give each of her friends?

Answer: 138 blocks

We need to use the formal method of standard algorithm division to solve this. We also need to ensure we include Keira and her 15 friends so we have the number 16 as the divisor.

When we divide 2,208 by 16 using long division we get the answer 138.

Wesleigh was running in the cross country race. He ran for a distance of 3,569m and it took him 11 minutes to complete the race. How many meters did he run per minute? Give your answer to the nearest whole meter.

Answer: 324 meters

We need to use standard algorithm division to divide 3,569 by 11. That will give us an answer of 324.45. As the decimal can be rounded down, the answer is 324 meters.

Sophia is preparing her candy stall for the fair. She can fit 18 tins of candy into one crate. How many crates will be needed to fit 153 tins of candy?

Answer: 9 crates

We divide 153 by 18 using standard algorithm division and we have an answer of 8, remainder 5. Therefore, having 8 crates would not be enough as we would have 85 tins left over and so we need a further tin to house the 5 tins left over. So, 9 crates are needed.

## Division Worksheets

Welcome to the division worksheets page at Math-Drills.com! Please give us your undivided attention while we introduce this page. Our worksheets for division help you to teach students the very important concept of division. If students have a good recall of multiplication facts, the division facts should be a breeze to teach. If you want your students to experience success in learning division, please make sure they know their multiplication facts to 81, how to multiply by 0 and how to multiply by 10. If they don't know these things, learning division will take a lot longer.

On this page you will find many Division Worksheets including division facts and long division with and without remainders. We start off with some division facts which are just the multiplication facts expressed in a different way. The main difference is that you can't divide by 0 and get a real number. If you really want your students to impress, say at their dinner table when their parents ask them what they learned today, you can teach them that division by zero is undefined.

The rest of the page is devoted to long division which for some reason is disliked among some members of the population. Long division is most difficult when students don't know their multiplication facts, so make sure they know them first! Oh, we already said that. What about a long division algorithm... maybe the one you or your parents or your grandparents learned? We adamantly say, yes! The reason that you and your ancestors used it is because it is an efficient and beautiful algorithm that will allow you to solve some of the most difficult division problems that even base ten blocks couldn't touch. It works equally well for decimals and whole numbers. Long division really isn't that hard.

## Division Facts up to the 9 Times Table

Manipulatives can help students "get" the concept of division. For example, students could regroup base ten blocks into units, then divide the units into piles. For the question 81 ÷ 9, students would start with eight ten blocks and one unit block. They would trade in the ten blocks for unit blocks and try to distribute all 81 of the unit blocks into nine piles. If they did it correctly, they would end up with 9 piles of 9 units and could say that 81 ÷ 9 = 9 as there are 9 units in each pile.

If students learn up to the 9 times table and can do all the related division, they are likely to do well in later math studies. Long multiplication and long division, algebra, and many other math topics rely on students knowing these facts. Division facts worksheets up to the nine times tables can be used for students to practice, as a diagnostic test to see what gaps exist, or as a mastery test before moving on to the next topic. This section includes horizontally arranged questions which allows for a 100 per page option. Worksheets up to the 8 times table are also included to ensure a continual flow with the rest of this page, say, if you were adding one number at a time.

More individual facts where a single number is used as the divisor throughout the entire worksheet. The quotients end up being in the range 1 to 9. These are great for students that need more practice on one or more divisors. This might be identified using a diagnostic test of a worksheet that includes all the division facts. If students consistently get questions wrong with a certain divisor, these worksheets might help them.

Ten is such an important number in math. Our entire numbering system is based on tens. There are ten digits and each lower place is a tenth (divided by 10) of the place before it. Although 10 is a two-digit number, it is almost always included in multiplication and division facts learning. Multiplying and dividing by 10 is so important there is a whole page (powers of ten) on Math-Drills dedicated to it.

If you jumped right to this section, you cannot be blamed! A lot of students learn their times tables all at once and that means including the most important 10! So, when they are ready for division worksheets, they are ready for this section. For students who might be struggling a bit though, please scroll up and start them off with something a little more at their pace.

## Division Facts up to the 12 Times Table

Ah, twelve. Educators have a penchant for the the 12 times table likely because it is important in clocks, eggs, the Vendergood language, and definitely to the Dozenal Societies of America and Great Britain. In mathematics, it is seen mostly in the completion of both multiplication and division facts worksheets. Since Math-Drills is happy to support the base twelve system, we present worksheets with division facts up to the 12 times table in the unlikely event that the duodecimal (aka dozenal) system is ever adopted.

Division is essentially asking the question, "How many _____'s are in _____?" For the question, 81 ÷ 9, the prompt would sound like, "How many 9's are in 81?" This prompt will benefit students in later math studies when there are more complex concepts such as dividing decimals or fractions. "How many thirds are in four?" or even better, "How many third cups are in four cups?" If necessary, get out the measuring cups.

## Division Facts beyond the 12 Times Table

Scenario: you have some students that have aced the division facts up to the 12 times table and need more of a challenge. This section has got you covered. Is there an argument for learning division facts for times tables beyond 9? 10? 12? Sure, why not. Students are likely to apply their knowledge in future math studies by instantly recognizing that the square root of 625 is 25, for example.

There are certainly a few questions on these worksheets that will be useful knowledge later on. If your students are interested in learning them, anything to do with 16, 20, 24, and 25 will certainly be useful, and likely someone could come up with a reason for learning the others. Sixteen is used in the base 16 (aka hexadecimal system), so converting hexadecimal numbers to decimal numbers involves dividing (and multiplying by 16). Twenty is a great number that is divisible by six different numbers and in turn is a factor of some important numbers. Twenty is also a coin unit in many countries. Twenty-four hours is the length of a day, so if you wanted to know how many days were in 288 hours, you might want to know your 24 times table division facts. Twenty-five, well that is the value of a quarter, isn't it? You could also calculate how many seconds of PAL video you have by dividing the number of frames by 25!

## Long division Worksheets

Need an easier way to divide large numbers? Try this method using powers of ten. To successfully use this method, students need to be able to multiply by powers of ten and to subtract. Students subtract the dividend multiplied by decreasing powers of ten until they have zero or a remainder. Example: 1458 ÷ 54. Note 54 × 1 = 54, 54 × 10 = 540 (nothing greater is needed). 1458 - 540 - 540 = 378. Note that 540 was subtracted twice, so the number of times that 54 "goes into" 1458 so far is 20 times. Continuing, 378 - 54 - 54 - 54 - 54 - 54 - 54 - 54 = 0. Since 54 was subtracted seven times, the quotient increases by seven for a total of 27. In other words, 54 "goes into" 1458, 27 times.

We might also mention that this method can be even more sophisticated by using multiples of powers of ten. In the above example, using 54 × 5 = 270 would have helped to get to the quotient quicker.

Have you ever thought that you could help a student understand things better and get a more precise answer while still using remainders? It's quite easy really. Remainders are usually given out of context, including on the answer keys below. A remainder is really a numerator in a fractional quotient. For example 19 ÷ 3 is 6 with a remainder of 1 which is more precisely 6 1/3. Using fractional quotients means your students will always find the exact answer to all long division questions, and in many cases the answer will actually be more precise (e.g. compare 6 1/3 with 6.3333....).

We thought it might be helpful to include some long division worksheets with the steps shown. The answer keys for these division worksheets use the standard algorithm that you might learn if you went to an English speaking school. Learning this algorithm by itself is sometimes not enough as it may not lead to a good conceptual understanding. One tool that helps students learn the standard algorithm and develop an understanding of division is a set of base ten blocks. By teaching students division with base ten blocks first then progressing to the standard algorithm, students will gain a conceptual understanding plus have the use of an efficient algorithm for long division. Students who have both of these things will naturally experience more success in their future mathematical studies.

Divisibility by 2, 5 and 10

A number is divisible by 2 if the final digit (the digit in the ones place) is even. Numbers ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8 therefore are divisible by 2. A number is divisible by 5 if the final digit is a 0 or a 5. A number is divisible by 10 if the final digit is a 0.

Divisibility by 3, 6 and 9

A number is divisible by 3 if the sum of its digits is divisible by 3. For example, 285 is divisible by 3 because 2 + 8 + 5 = 15 is divisible by 3. A number is divisible by 6 if it is divisible by both 3 and 2 (see above rules). A number is divisible by 9 if the sum of its digits is divisible by 9. For examples, 285 is not divisible by 9 because 2 + 8 + 5 = 15 is not divisible by 9.

Divisibility by 4, 7 and 8

A number is divisible by 4 if the last two digits of the number are divisible by 4. For 7, there are a couple of strategies to use. Please see Divisibility Tricks for Learning Math for more information. A number is divisible by 8 if the last three digits are divisible by 8. This is the standard rule which can be a little sketchy for larger numbers, like who knows if 680 is divisible by 8? Because of this, we offer our Math-Drills.com solution which requires a little arithmetic, but can be accomplished quite easily with a little practice. As you know 8 is 2 to the third power, so we thought if you could divide the last three digits of a number by 2 three times, it would be divisible by 8. 680 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 = 340 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 = 170 ÷ 2 = 85. We have a winner! 680 is indeed divisible by 8.

## Division in Math

Division is a math superpower that breaks down a whole — whether you’re cutting a pizza or divvying up some candy!

Author Christina Levandowski

Expert Reviewer Jill Padfield

Published: August 24, 2023

- Key takeaways
- Division is an opposite game – If you multiply numbers, you can “undo” them using division. It’s multiplication’s opposite function!
- There’s a few signs to look for – There are three main symbols for division.
- You won’t always get “even Stevens” – Sometimes, you’ll have a little left over. That leftover number is known as the “remainder.”

## What is division?

Common symbols and terminology, properties of division, how to divide in 6 easy steps, what is long division, working with remainders.

- Let’s practice together!

## Practice problems

Division is one of the most important math skills you’ll practice, helping you to undo multiplication problems or break off parts of a “whole.” We know it looks complicated, but it really isn’t! You just need to know what signs to look for that tell you when division is needed.

Like addition and subtraction, division uses a few special terms and symbols. Knowing these can help you to work out your problems quickly and correctly.

We know it sounds complicated right now — but with a little practice and this handy guide, you’ll be flying through your math homework in no time!

Division is a process in math that lets you break down a number into multiple, equal parts. Sometimes, you can cut everything down into whole number parts, and, sometimes, you’ll be left with a little leftover, giving you a decimal or fraction for an answer rather than a whole number.

You’ll often see division problems vertically, like this:

It can also be written horizontally: 10 ÷ 2, as 10/2 , or using a division bar: 2 ⟌ 10.

No matter how you see it, though, the use for it is always the same. You’re breaking down a number or quantity into smaller pieces.

Let’s take a look at some key terms that’ll help you build your division skills.

Division is a simple mathematical operation, but there are still a few terms to know to help you find the correct solution.

Here are the terms you need to know to solve division equations with ease:

➗ — This is known as a division sign, and it tells you that a number needs to be broken down into multiple pieces.

⟌ — This is the division bar, and it also means to divide. On the outside of the bar, you’ll see the number determining how many pieces are needed from the whole (the divisor), and the dividend on the inside, which is what you’ll be dividing. The answer goes on the top of the bar.

∕ — This is known as the division slash. Generally, the divisor comes first, and the dividend will appear second.

## Important vocabulary

- Divisor – The divisor is the number that is determining how many pieces are needed from the whole. For example: in 15 ÷ 3, three would be the divisor. It’s also the number located outside of the bracket when you see a division bar.
- Dividend – The dividend is the number that’s being divided, and it’s found inside the division bar.
- Quotient – The quotient is your answer, which goes after the equals (=) sign or on the top of the division bar.
- Remainder – In some cases, you’ll have a remainder — which means that the divisor can’t be equally divided into the dividend. The remainder is written to the side of your equation next to the division bar.

Anytime you see the word “property” in math, know that it’s just a rule to remember as you work through your groups of problems. Here are some of the most important properties of division that you need to know:

- The Division By 1 Property: If a number is divided by 1, the quotient will always be the original number.
- The Division By Itself Property: If a number is divided by itself, the quotient will always be 1.
- The Division By 0 Property: If a number is divided by 0, it’s “undefined” and cannot be solved.
- The Division Of 0 By (Any) Number Property: If a 0 value is divided by any number, you’ll have 0 as your quotient.

Knowing these helpful properties can help you to do basic operations (like division) confidently. Remember — these are division facts, so these properties will always be true…no matter what problem you’re working to find the quotient to!

Now that you know the terms and properties of your division operation, it’s time to practice your skills. Let’s work the problem below together.

## 1. Prepare your equation

We know that the problem above can feel overwhelming — so we want to take this moment to remind you that what we’re doing is breaking down a number into smaller numbers (or smaller groups of numbers).

First things first, we have to prepare the equation. Feel free to keep it horizontal, write it vertically, or use a division bar if you’d like. Use whatever method you feel comfortable with.

Remember: The dividend (15) belongs inside the division bar if you choose to use that method.

## 2. Start with the first digit of the dividend from the left

As we begin to divide, we need to start from the first digit from the left (in this case, 1) and ask ourselves: Does the divisor (3) go into 1 at least once?

The answer here is “no,” so we will then evaluate the first AND second integer (making 15) as a dividend.

We ask again: Does the divisor (3) go into 15 at least once?

Now, the answer is “yes” — we just have to count how many times 3 can go into 15, starting our division process.*

*NOTE: You can do this by using basic arithmetic operations (such as multiplication) to “undo” the problem (i.e., 3 x ? = 15) or counting by threes until you reach 15.

In our case, 3 goes into 15 a total of five times.

## 3. Divide it by the divisor and write the answer on top as the quotient

Now that we know that 15 ÷ 3 = 5, it’s time to write it into our equation. Go ahead and write 5 behind the equals sign or standing tall at the top of your division bar.

## 4. Subtract the product of the divisor and the digit written in the quotient from the first digit of the dividend

Now, we have to check our work. We have to ask ourselves: What is 5 x 3? Does it equal our dividend? If it does, you’re golden — you’ve done it!

Do the multiplication, and then subtract your product to ensure that there’s no other steps remaining (like you’d see in the case of a remainder).

In our example, 15 – 15 = 0…so no remainder or further action is needed.

## 5. Bring down the next digit in the dividend (if possible)

In other problems, if you did have a three or four digit dividend, you might need to bring down the next digit in the dividend, and determine if your divisor divides that number cleanly.

You would then repeat the division process, putting your answer over the third or “next” place above the division bar as part of the quotient.

Next, yo would repeat step 4 to determine if more steps in the division process are needed.

In our example, we don’t have to do this, so we will leave it as is. Good work!

Congratulations! You just broke a large number down into equal, separate parts. It’s time to repeat the process for your other problems.

Long division is a form of division that’s used to break down larger numbers and will generally repeat steps 1-6 above at least three or more times.

We’ll work on that stuff later — for now, let’s just focus on mastering the basics!

What happens when you wind up with a little extra left over, you might ask? While it can look pretty scary, it’s simple to solve.

To do this, you’ll repeat steps one through five above until you get a number that cannot continue to be divided evenly. At this point, you’ll do a few additional steps:

- Determine how many times the divisor goes in to the product of your current answer and the divisor. This won’t be a clean number, and that’s OKAY — that’s what your remainder process is for.
- Complete the subtraction steps. After you get your number, complete the subtraction steps and write your answer below the subtraction bar.
- For example: In the case of 16 ➗ 3, we would write the quotient as: 5R1.

When you see that there’s zero left over, or if there is no way for the divisor to divide into the dividend, that means that your problem is solved!

## Let’s practice together

- We ask: “How many times can 6 go into 2?”
- 6 is greater than 2, so we will not be able to put a number over the 2. We then consider, “How many times can 6 go into 20?”
- Well, this is a bit of a challenge! 6 does not go into 20 evenly. 6 x 3= 18, and 6 x 4= 24. So, 6 can go into 20 three times, but it won’t go evenly.
- So, we add the 3 over the 0, above the division bar.
- We put the product of 6 x 3 (our divisor x our quotient) under the dividend and subtract to determine if the a remainder in our difference.
- There is a remainder of 2. We write our quotient as: 3R2 .

- We know that our divisor is going to be 1, and our dividend (the number being divided) is 5. We identify them, and we put them properly into a division bar.
- We ask: “How many times can 1 go into 5?”
- Instead of working the problem counting or using multiplication, we remember the Division By 1 Property.
- We put 5 at the top of our division bar, since any integer that is divided by 1 will always be itself.
- There is no remainder for these types of Division By 1 Property problems. We can move on to the next problem.

- We know that our divisor is going to be 2, and our dividend (the number being divided) is 0. We identify them, and we put them properly into a division bar.
- We ask, “How many times can 2 go into 0?”
- Instead of working the problem counting or using multiplication, we remember the Division Of 0 By (Any) Number Property.
- We put 0 at the top of our division bar, since any integer that attempts to divide 0 as a dividend will always result in a quotient of zero.
- There is no remainder for these types of Division Of 0 By (Any) Number Property problems. We move on to the next problem.

Ready to give it a go?

You’ve done great so far — and you’re well on your way to mastering the art of division. Don’t be afraid to keep trying and make mistakes.

Practice makes perfect, so we’ve given you a few more problems to practice as you work to perfect your skills. Remember: You can always scroll up to walk through the tutorials and refresh yourself on the terms, placement, and properties you’ll need to solve these correctly.

The answer is 2 .

The answer is 1R6 .

The answer is 4 .

## Parent Guide

The answer is 2.

How did we get here?

- We identify 4 as the dividend and 2 as the divisor, and place them in the division bar.
- We ask: “How many times can 2 go into 4?” We determine this using the “count by twos” method, which shows us that 2 goes into 4 a total of two times.
- We put 2 at the top of our division bar as the quotient, and multiply it by our divisor (2). We then subtract the product of our multiplication from the number to get an answer of 0, which shows us that there is no remainder. You’re done!

The answer is 1R6.

- We identify 8 as our divisor and 14 as our dividend, and place them in the division bar.
- We ask: “How many times can 8 go into 14?”, as 8 will not go into 1. We determine this using the “count by eights” method, which shows us that 8 goes into 14 just once.
- We write a 1 in the quotient place above the 4 under the division bar. We then multiply 1 x 8 to get a product of 8, which is placed below the 14 under the division bar.
- Now, we do the math and subtract 8 from 14. We’ll get 6 as our difference.
- We then write our quotient as 1R6.

The answer is 4.

How did we get here?

- We identify 5 as our divisor and 20 as our dividend, and place them in the division bar.
- We ask: “How many times can 5 go into 20,” as 5 will not go into 2 at all. We determine this using the “count by fives” method, which shows us that 5 can go into 20 cleanly four times.
- We place a “4” in our quotient place, and multiply 4 x 5 to get a product of 20. This is written under the division bar as a subtraction problem.
- We subtract 20 – 20, resulting in a difference of 0.
- This means that 4 is our final quotient with no remainder.

## FAQs about math strategies for kids

We understand that diving into new information can sometimes be overwhelming, and questions often arise. That’s why we’ve meticulously crafted these FAQs, based on real questions from students and parents. We’ve got you covered!

Division is the mathematical process that breaks down a big value into smaller values.

There are plenty of times you’ll use division in your everyday life. Some of the most common ways might be to break up an even quantity of something, determining how much of an ingredient to use, or grouping up items for use.

Division is the inverse of multiplication. This means that it naturally undoes any sort of operation that’s done with multiplication.

The three main parts of division are the divisor, dividend, and quotient.

## Long Division Problems with Answers Generator

Here is our random worksheet generator for creating your own long or short division worksheets.

You can generate a range of long division worksheets ranging from 2 digit by 1 digit up to 5 digits by 2 digits.

Using this generator will let you create your own worksheets for:

- Dividing 2, 3, 4 and 5 digit numbers by a range of different numbers up to 99;
- Dividing numbers with or without a remainder;
- Choosing exactly which divisors you want to include;

One of the best features of this generator is that you can choose individual values for the divisors for the worksheets (between 2 and 15).

This means that:

- if you were introducing long division for the first time, you could choose just to divide 2 digit numbers by, say, 2, 3 and 5.
- if you wanted to introduce dividing by two digits but you wanted to divide 3 digit numbers by 11 and 12, you could do that also.
- to access this feature, go to the 'Select divisors from a list' option.

To start creating your sheet, choose an option from the Number values box below.

## Parts of a Long Division Equation

The dividend is the number being divided.

The divisor is the number you are dividing by.

The quotient is the number of times the divisor goes into the dividend.

The remainder is what is left over from the dividend when the divisor has been taken away as many times as it can be without leading to a negative answer.

The remainder can be a whole number, but it can also be expressed as a fraction or decimal.

## Examples of Long Division Problems with Answers

Here are some examples showing some long division problems with answers, along with commentary on each step.

## Example 1) Work out 84 ÷ 3

So we are working out \[ 3 \enclose {longdiv} {84} \]

FIrst step is to work out 8 ÷ 3, which means we need to find how many groups of 3 make 8.

We can get 2 groups of 3 in 8, and 2 x 3 = 6 so this gives us: \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad 2 \\ 3 \enclose {longdiv} {84} \\ \quad \underline{6} \end{array} \]

Next we subtract 6 from 8 to give us: \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad 2 \\ 3 \enclose {longdiv} {84} \\ \quad \underline{6} \\ \quad 2 \end{array} \]

The next step is to bring down the 4 and put it next to the 2 \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad 2 \\ 3 \enclose {longdiv} {84} \\ \quad \underline{6} \\ \quad 24 \end{array} \]

We now have to work out 24 ÷ 3, or how many groups of 3 make 24.

8 groups of 3 make 24. So this gives us: \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad 28 \\ 3 \enclose {longdiv} {84} \\ \quad \underline{6} \\ \quad 24 \\ \quad \underline{24} \end{array} \]

Finally subtract 24 from 24 to give us an answer of 0. \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad 28 \\ 3 \enclose {longdiv} {84} \\ \quad \underline{6} \\ \quad 24 \\ \quad \underline{24} \\ \quad \; \; 0 \end{array} \]

There are no more digits to bring down and we have no remainders, so we have finished.

Answer: 84 ÷ 3 = 28

## Example 2) Work out 347 ÷ 4

So we are working out \[ 4 \enclose {longdiv} {347} \]

FIrst step is to work out 3 ÷ 4, which means we need to find how many groups of 4 make 3.

There are 0 groups of 4 in 3, so we keep the 3 in its place and go on to the next digit which is 4.

This gives us: \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad 0 \\ 4 \enclose {longdiv} {347} \end{array} \]

So the next step is to work out 34 ÷ 4, or find how many groups of 4 make 34.

8 groups of 4 make 32. So this gives us: \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad 08 \\ 4 \enclose {longdiv} {347} \\ \quad \underline {32} \end{array} \]

We subtract 32 from 34 to give us an answer of 2. This gives us: \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad 08 \\ 4 \enclose {longdiv} {347} \\ \quad \underline {32} \\ \quad \; \; 2 \end{array} \]

Next we bring the 7 down alongside the 2. \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad 08 \\ 4 \enclose {longdiv} {347} \\ \quad \underline {32} \\ \quad \; \; 27 \end{array} \]

So we need to work out 27 ÷ 4, or find how many 4s make 27.

6 groups of 4 make 24. So this gives us: \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad 086 \\ 4 \enclose {longdiv} {347} \\ \quad \underline {32} \\ \quad \; \; 27 \\ \quad \; \; \underline {24} \end{array} \]

Finally we need to subtract 24 from 27 to give us 3.

There are no more digits to bring down, so we are left with 3 as a remainder. \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad 086r3 \\ 4 \enclose {longdiv} {347} \\ \quad \underline {32} \\ \quad \; \; 27 \\ \quad \; \; \underline {24} \\ \quad \quad 3 \end{array} \]

Answer: 347 ÷ 4 = 86r3

If we wanted the remainder as a fraction, we would have 347 ÷ 4 = 86 ¾

## Example 3) Work out 8165 ÷ 12

So we are working out \[ 12 \enclose {longdiv} {8165} \]

FIrst step is to work out 8 ÷ 12, which means we need to find how many groups of 12 make 8.

There are 0 groups of 12 in 8, so we keep the 8 in its place and go on to the next digit which is 1.

This gives us: \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad \; 0 \\ 12 \enclose {longdiv} {8165} \end{array} \]

So the next step is to work out 81 ÷ 12, or find how many groups of 12 make 81.

6 groups of 12 make 72. So this gives us: \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad \; 06 \\ 12 \enclose {longdiv} {8165} \\ \quad \; \, \underline {72} \end{array} \]

6 groups of 12 make 72. So this gives us: \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad \; 06 \\ 12 \enclose {longdiv} {8165} \\ \quad \; \, \underline {72} \\ \qquad 9 \end{array} \]

Next we bring the 6 down alongside the 9. \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad \; 06 \\ 12 \enclose {longdiv} {8165} \\ \quad \; \, \underline {72} \\ \qquad 96 \end{array} \]

So we need to work out 96 ÷ 12, or find how many 12s make 96.

8 groups of 12 make 96. So this gives us: \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad \; 068 \\ 12 \enclose {longdiv} {8165} \\ \quad \; \, \underline {72} \\ \qquad 96 \\ \qquad \underline{96} \end{array} \]

Now we subtract 96 from 96 to give us 0. \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad \; 068 \\ 12 \enclose {longdiv} {8165} \\ \quad \; \, \underline {72} \\ \qquad 96 \\ \qquad \underline{96} \\ \qquad \; \: 0 \end{array} \]

Now we bring down the 5. \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad \; 068 \\ 12 \enclose {longdiv} {8165} \\ \quad \; \, \underline {72} \\ \qquad 96 \\ \qquad \underline{96} \\ \qquad \; \: 05 \end{array} \]

Nexy we need to work out 5 ÷ 12, or how many 12s make 5.

0 groups of 12 make 5, so this gives us: \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad \; 0680 \\ 12 \enclose {longdiv} {8165} \\ \quad \; \, \underline {72} \\ \qquad 96 \\ \qquad \underline{96} \\ \qquad \; \: 05 \\ \qquad \; \: \underline {00} \end{array} \]

Subtracting 0 from 5 gives us 5. There are no more digits to bring down, so 5 is the remainder. \[ \begin {array}{l} \quad \; 0680r5 \\ 12 \enclose {longdiv} {8165} \\ \quad \; \, \underline {72} \\ \qquad 96 \\ \qquad \underline{96} \\ \qquad \; \: 05 \\ \qquad \; \: \underline {00} \\ \qquad \quad 5 \end{array} \]

Answer: 8165 ÷ 12 = 680r5

If we wanted the remainder as a fraction, we would have \[ 8165 \div 12 = 680 {5 \over 12} \]

## 5 Fun Division Word Problems | Practice Multiple Ways of Solving | Free Printable

Table of Contents

## Division Word Problems

Are your children ready to conquer division? These interactive, division problem-solving worksheets will help children solve division word problems in five different ways.

## Division Problems

He has done it numerous times. Sharing a group of toys with his siblings, or even sharing a bag of M&M’s. In those situations, he instinctively knows how to do division problems.

When we hit the division problem in his math book, he wasn’t quite as sure what to do.

I wanted this little man of mine to be able to relate division to what he has done over and over while creating strategies for solving division problems.

These word problems with five steps were what we came up with. These simple division worksheets are perfect for 3rd grade division word problems.

## How to Solve Division Word Problems

Step 1: division word problem solving by grouping.

The first step is the way we normally teach children to solve division problems. The students grab the amounts of objects that need to be divided up and then place them in the correct amount of groups. It is very hands-on and a visual way for our children to understand what is happening when we are dividing .

## Step 2: Solving Division Word Problems by Repeated Subtraction

To solve a word problem using repeated subtraction, students start with the number being divided up or the dividend. Now they subtract the divisor or the number that tells how many groups are needed from the dividend over and over until they reach zero. The number of times they subtracted is the answer.

## Step 3: Division Word Problem Solving with Arrays

Chances are if you taught multiplication in a hands-on way, you taught it using arrays. You can create an array when you place objects, pictures, or numbers in equal columns and equal rows.

With multiplication, you would take a problem like 4 x 5, and make 4 rows with 5 in each column. You would end up with 20 objects, which of course is the answer to the multiplication problem.

Division is a little different. If the problem is 18 ÷ 3, The student creates three rows. They then keep placing one object in each row until they have used 18 objects.

They now have an array that is a 3 by 6. The answer to the division problem is 6.

Want to know how to use arrays to divide when the numbers are larger? Check out this POST !

## Step 4: Number Line to Solve Division Word Problems

Number lines have become an important tool in helping children solve problems. The beginning of this video by Ramy Melhem clearly shows how to divide using a number line, and the little frog hopping is a great visual for our little ones.

## Step 5: Create an Equation

The final step is very easy after all the work above. The students simply figure out what number was divided up, and place it in the first box.

They then look at how many groups they created, and that is the number that goes into the second box. Finally, they figure out how many objects were in each group and that is the answer or quotient.

That number goes in the last box.

By throwing in markers and painting with q-tips these sheets were fun for my little man, and I could see his understanding of division grow.

We moved on to these cut-and-paste division assessments, and his thinking was challenged even more. Through all this practice he is on his way to mastering simple division problems, and your kiddos can master it too.

## Problem Solving on Division

Problem solving on division will help us to get the idea on how to solve the basic division statement problems.

1. The teacher brought 36 books from the library. He asked Ron to put them on 3 tables. He was to put the same number of books on each table. How many books should Ron put on each table?

Number of books bought from the library = 36

Number of tables = 3

Therefore, number of books Ron put on each table = 36 ÷ 3 = 12

2. There are 48 bikes in 4 rows. How many bikes were in each row?

Number of bikes = 48

Number of rows = 4

Therefore, number of bikes in each row = 48 ÷ 4 = 12

3. Today 155 children went to see the Red Fort. They went in 5 buses. How many children were in each bus if each bus had the same number of children?

Number of children went to see the Red Fort = 155

Number of buses = 5

Therefore, number of children in each bus = 155 ÷ 5 = 31

4. On Sunday, 126 scouts are to go on a hike. There are 6 troops of the same size. How many scouts are in each troop?

Number of scouts to go on a hike = 126

Number of troops of the same size = 6

Therefore, number of scouts in each troop = 126 ÷ 6 = 21

5. How many 8 centimeter pieces of ribbon can be cut from 96 centimeters of ribbon?

Length of a ribbon = 96 cm

Length of a pieces of ribbon cut = 8 cm

Therefore, number of pieces of ribbon in 8 cm = 96 ÷ 8 = 12

6. Sharon had 56 bulbs to plant. She was going to put 4 in each flower pot. How many pots did she need?

Number of bulbs Sharon had to plant = 56

Number of bulbs in each flower pot = 4

Therefore, number of pots she need = 56 ÷ 4 = 14

More examples on statement problem solving on division:

7. The 168 chairs in the hall had to be put in rows with 8 in each. How many rows were made?

Number of chairs in the hall = 168

Number of chairs in each row = 8

Therefore, number of rows = 168 ÷ 8 = 21

8. How many packets will be made if 267 books are packed with 3 books in each?

Number of books = 267

Number of books in each packet = 3

Therefore, number of packets = 267 ÷ 3 = 89

## Practice Solving Division Problems

In this post, we are going to learn to analyze, think about, and solve problems that require division: division problems. At Smartick , we want to emphasize the fact that you have to know how to solve any kind of math problem accurately. As a result, we are going to give you a variety of problems that require division to solve.

## Division problems nº 1

In high school, some teachers had complained that there weren’t sufficient supplies, and as a result, they had to share 18 boxes of erasers equally among 9 classes. How many eraser boxes will each class receive?

This is the easiest type of division problem that we will come across. The problem tells us that there are 18 boxes and they want to split them into equal parts among nine classes. When we talk about splitting into equal parts, we are talking about DIVISION:

Each class will receive 2 boxes of erasers.

## Division problems nº 2

My town has a water supply beside the big gardens on the tallest hill, to make sure there is enough water for the irrigation, but there are only 56 gallons of water currently in the supply. If it is all shared with the recipients, 8 liters to each one, how many recipients are supplied with water?

This problem is similar to the previous one. Again, you have to share the 56 gallons of water being divided among recipients, giving 8 liters to each one. Therefore, we have to DIVIDE:

7 recipients will be supplied.

## Division problems nº 3

Like every Sunday morning, Richard and Catherine have gone out for a walk through the field. As they are used to playing sports, they go quickly and without stopping on their walk. Knowing that the walk lasts three hours, and that they walk 15 miles in total and that they have walked with seven people, calculate how fast they are walking (assuming they walk at a constant speed).

They walked at a rate of 5 mi/hr (5 mph).

## Division problems nº 4

Raymond and I are saving to buy a game and giving it to Carmen for her birthday, which is coming up in 5 days. He has $9 and I already have $27. How many times more money have I saved than Raymond?

The verbiage of the problem can lead to confusion, so that “more” or “fewer” times can be interpreted as an addition or subtraction. In the case of this problem, they say that Raymond has gotten $9 and that I have $27 and they ask me how many times more I have saved than he has. Raymond has less money than me; therefore, the amount that he has ($9) multiplied by some number has to give a result of the money that I have ($27). Therefore, what we have to do is DIVIDE:

I have saved 3 times more than Raymond.

And with this, we have finished how to solve one-operation problems: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems. If you want to learn a lot more math register in Smartick and try it for free!

## Division Word Problems (2-step word problems)

Here are some examples of division word problems that can be solved in two steps. We will illustrate how block diagrams or tape diagrams can be used to help you to visualize the division word problems in terms of the information given and the data that needs to be found. We also learn how to solve multiplication and division word problems by identifying key terms.

Related Pages 1-Step Division Word Problems Multiplication and Division Word Problems More Word Problems More Singapore Math Lessons

Block diagrams are used in Singapore Math and tape diagrams are used in the Common Core Math.

We use division or multiplication when the problem involves equal parts of a whole. Sometimes, the problem involves comparison and it becomes a 2-step problem. The following diagram shows how to use equal parts of a whole and comparison. Scroll down the page for examples and solutions.

Example: Marcus had 700 marbles. He gave away 175 marbles and put the remaining marbles equally into 5 bags. How many marbles were there in each bag?

Solution: Step 1: Find how many marbles he had left.

700 – 175 = 525 He had 525 marbles left.

Step 2: Find the number of marbles in each box.

525 ÷ 5 = 105 There were 105 marbles in each box.

Example: Rosalind made 364 donuts. She put 8 donuts into each box. a) How many boxes of donuts were there? How many donuts were left over? b) If she sold each box for $3, how much money would she receive?

Solution: Step 1: Find the number of boxes of donuts.

364 ÷ 8 = 45 remainder 4 There were 45 boxes of donuts. 4 donuts were left over.

Step 2: Find how much money she would receive.

45 × 3 = 135 She would receive $135.

How to solve a 2-step division word problem using multiple tape diagrams?

In math, few skills are as practical as knowing how to do long division . It's the art of breaking down complex problems into manageable steps, making it an essential tool for students and adults alike.

This operation has many practical uses in our daily lives. For instance, imagine you have a bag of 2,436 candies and want to share them equally among 4 friends. Long division helps you determine that each friend gets 609 candies, ensuring everyone gets their fair share.

Let's dive into the fundamentals of long division and learn about other everyday situations where we can put it to use.

## What Is Long Division?

How to do long division in simple steps, long division method: an apple example, using long division in everyday life, how to divide a decimal point by a whole number, practice problems and answers.

Long division is a handy way to divide big numbers by smaller ones, helping us figure out how many times one number fits into another. It turns a tricky math problem into easier steps.

When we do long division, we work with four main parts:

- the big number we want to divide (called the " dividend ")
- the smaller number we're dividing by (the " divisor ")
- the answer to our division (the " quotient ")
- sometimes a little bit left over (the " remainder ")

## Long Division vs. Short Division

Short and long division are both methods to divide numbers, but they differ in complexity. The short-division method is a quick way to find the answer when dividing simple numbers. For example, say you want to divide 36 by 6. You write it as 36 ÷ 6, using a division sign, and quickly get the answer, which is 6.

Long division is used for bigger, more complicated numbers, typically two or more digits. This method involves several steps, like writing out the numbers neatly and carefully.

Let's dive into long division with a clear example. We'll use 845 ÷ 3 to walk through this step-by-step process:

- Set up the problem. Write the dividend (845) under the division bar and the divisor (3) outside the bar.
- Divide. Look at the first digit of the dividend (8). How many times does 3 go into 8? Twice, because 3 x 2 = 6, and that's the closest we can get without going over. Write the 2 above the division bar, over the 8.
- Multiply. Multiply the quotient (2) by the divisor (3). (2 x 3 = 6). Write 6 under the 8.
- Subtract. Subtract 6 from 8 to get 2. Draw a line under the 6, subtract, and write 2 below the line.
- Bring down the next digit. Now, bring down the next digit of the dividend, which is 4, to sit next to the 2, making 24.
- Repeat the steps. 3 goes into 24 eight times (3 x 8 = 24), so write 8 above the bar next to the 2. Subtract 24 from 24 to get 0. Now, follow the same process you used in steps 1 through 5 and bring down the last digit, which is 5, to form 05. The number 3 goes into 5 once (3 x 1 = 3), leaving a remainder of 2. Write the 1 above the bar and the remainder 2 below after subtracting 3 from 5.
- The final answer with a remainder. You've divided 845 by 3 to get a final answer of 281 with a remainder of 2.
- Convert the remainder to decimal form. Depending on how far along you are in learning long division, this may be your final answer. If you've progressed to decimals, you will add .0 to 845 and put a decimal point above the division bar, right after the 1. Bring 0 down to form 20. The number 3 goes into 20 six times (3 x 6 = 18). Write 6 after the decimal point above the division bar. Normally, you would continue adding another 0 after 845. until there is no remainder, but since 20 – 18 = 2, you would be repeating this process infinitely because 3 does not divide evenly into 845. Instead, you will draw a horizontal line over the 6 in 281.6 to indicate that it is a repeating decimal. A calculator would show the answer as 281.666667 to indicate that the repeating decimal rounds up.

Now let's use a practical example to work through the long division process.

Imagine you just went apple picking and came home with a massive haul of delicious fruit. In your kitchen, you have 456 apples, and you want to share them equally among 3 baskets to give to your friends, so you're dividing 3 by 456 (456 ÷ 3).

To figure out how many apples go into each basket, you'd tackle the division problem step by step.

- 3 goes into the first digit (4) once, so you write 1 above the division bar, above the 4 in 456. Then you show the subtraction: 4 – 3 = 1.
- Bring down the next digit (5) to form 15. 3 goes into 15 five times (3 x 5 = 15), so you write 5 above the division bar, above the 5 in 456. Then you show the subtraction: 15 – 15 = 0.
- Bring down the final digit (6) to form 06. 3 goes into 6 twice (3 x 2 = 6), so you write 2 above the division bar, above the 2 in 456. Then you show the subtraction: 6 – 6 = 0.
- Since there is no remainder left to divide, you quotient is now written atop the division bar: 152. You will need to place 152 apples in each of the 3 baskets to evenly distribute the 456 apples.

Long division also pops up in real-life situations . Think about when you need to divide something, like pizza or cake, into equal parts.

Want to cut a large recipe in half or figure out how many days are left till summer vacation? Long division can help with that. It's a great way to help us figure out those splits and manage resources better.

And, of course, practicing long division sharpens our problem-solving skills . It teaches us to tackle big problems step by step, breaking them down into smaller, more manageable pieces. This approach is super helpful in math and figuring out all sorts of challenges we might face.

So, long division is more than just a bunch of steps we follow. It's a key that unlocks a lot of doors in the world of math and beyond, helping us understand and connect different concepts and apply them in all sorts of ways.

Dividing decimals by whole numbers is useful in our everyday lives. For instance, if you're splitting a sum of money equally among a certain number of people, you'll need to divide the total (a decimal) by the number of people (a whole number) to determine how much each person gets.

Dividing a decimal point (decimal number) by a whole number is similar to regular division, but you must be mindful of the placement of the decimal point. Here's how to do it:

Example : Divide 0.5 by 5.

- Set up the problem. Begin by setting up the division, with 0.5 as the dividend (the number you're dividing, which will be under the division bar) and 5 as the divisor (the number you're dividing by, which will be to the left of the division bar).
- Begin dividing. 5 goes into the first digit of the dividend 0 times, so you'll write 0 above the division bar, above the 0 in 0.5, and place a decimal point after the 0 you just wrote. It should be directly above the decimal point in the dividend.
- Bring down the next digit. Bring down the 5 to form 05 (you do not bring the decimal down). 5 goes into 5 once (5 x 1 = 5), so you'll write 1 above the division bar, above the 5 in 0.5.
- Show the final answer. When you show the subtraction (5 – 5 = 0), you'll have no remainder. This means the number above the division bar is your final answer: 0.1.

Let's put our long division skills to the test with some word problems. Tackle these problems one step at a time, and don't rush. If you get stuck, pause and review the steps. Remember, practice makes perfect, and every problem is an opportunity to improve your long-division skills.

## 1. Emma has 672 pieces of candy to share equally among her 4 friends. How many pieces of candy does each friend get?

Solution : To find out, divide 672 by 4. Start with the first part of 672, which is 6, and see how many times 4 can fit into it. It fits 1 time, leaving us with 2. Bringing down the 7 turns it into 27, which 4 fits into 6 times, leaving us with 3. Finally, bringing down the 2 to join the remaining 3 makes 32, which 4 divides into 8 times. So, each friend gets 168 pieces of candy.

## 2. A teacher has 945 stickers to distribute equally in 5 of her classes. How many stickers does each class get?

Solution : We'll divide 945 by 5. Looking at 9 first, 5 goes into it 1 time. With 4 leftover, we bring down the 4 from 945 to get 44, which 5 divides into 8 times with another 4 leftover. Lastly, bringing down the 5 to the remaining 4 makes 45, which 5 divides into 9 times. Therefore, each class receives 189 stickers.

## 3. A library has 2,310 books to be placed equally on 6 shelves. How many books will each shelf contain?

Solution : Divide 2,310 by 6. Starting with 23, 6 goes into it 3 times with 5 leftover. After subtracting, we bring down the 1 to get 51, which 6 divides into 8 times with 3 leftover. Bringing down the 0 to the remaining 3 gives us 30, which 6 divides into 5 times. So, each shelf will have 385 books.
