Dividend Breaking 10s
Type 1 Worksheet
Reminders & Tips for - Dividend Breaking 10s type 1 worksheet:
- This is a necessary step for every 3 digits by 1 digit division, and I named it type 1.
- It means that the first digit of a dividend is less than our 1 digit divisor
- In that case we're dividing the first two digits of our dividend by our divisor
(Scroll down to see the example).
576 ÷ 8 =
- First thing we notice is that 5 < 8, so we'll take the first two digits from our dividend instead of one.
- The new situation is 57÷8
- 57 is not divisible by 8 (without remainder), but we'll try to get as close as we can (but not exceed it)
- Looks to me that 7 × 8 = 56 is the winner
- So we'll "break" our 576 as 56 tens + the rest
576 ÷ 8 = (560 + 16)÷8 = ...
- And that would be the end of this step. :-)
- What follows is that we have two simple division-table cases...
Here follows an interactive worksheet for this particular case. Take a few tries, I'm sure you'll figure out the pattern very quickly.
