## Dividend Breaking 1000s Worksheet

Reminders & Tips for - Dividend Breaking 1000s worksheet:

• A Reminder: you should already know your division table to 100.

• Tips: Fist we "chip off" 1000 (or 2000, 3000...) times the divisor from the dividend, and then deal with the rest.
• Therefore, the quotient of the first dividend-chip (in red in worksheet below) must be divisible by 1000 (i.e. = 1000, 2000, 3000...).

• Comment: Essentially, this is how all division, including the long division, is done.

• Example 1:   7910 ÷ 7 = ?

• We "chip off" (1000 × 7)  7000  from  7910
(we can't chip off 2000 × 7 = 14000 because that's bigger than 7910)

• So, now we have this situation: (7000 + 910) ÷ 7

• Following with: 7000÷7  + 910÷7

• 7000÷7 = 1000 (and is divisible by 1000)

• and 910÷7 should be solved according to Dividend Breaking 100s Worksheet

• Example 2:   8124 ÷ 4 = ?

• We "chip off" (2000 × 4)  8000  from  8124
(2000 × 4 is closer to 8124 than 1000 × 4 = 4000, and 3000 × 4 = 12000 is bigger than 8124)

• So, now we have this situation: (8000 + 124) ÷ 4

• Following with: 8000÷4  + 124÷2

• 8000÷4 = 2000 (and is divisible by 1000)

• and 124÷4 should be solved according to Dividend Breaking 100s Worksheet

• Example 3:   9597 ÷ 3 = ?

• We "chip off" (3000 × 3)  9000  from  597
(3000 × 3 is closer to 9597 than 1000 or 2000 × 3, and 4000 × 3 = 12000 is bigger than 9597)

• So, now we have this situation: (9000 + 93) ÷ 3

• Following with: 9000÷3  + 597÷3

• 9000÷3 = 3000 (and is divisible by 1000)

• and 597÷3 should be solved according to Dividend Breaking 100s Worksheet
