Dividend Breaking 100s
Type 1 Worksheet
Reminders & Tips for - Dividend Breaking 100s type 1 worksheet:
- This is a necessary step for every 4 digits by 1 digit division, and I named it type 1 (there's also type 2).
- 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).
1484 ÷ 4 =
- First thing we notice is that 1 < 4, so we'll use the first two digits from our dividend instead of one.
- The new situation is 14÷4
- 14 is not divisible by 4 (without remainder), but we'll try to get as close as we can (but not exceed it)
- Looks to me that 3 × 4 = 12 is our horse
- So we'll "break" our 1484 as 12 hundreds + the rest
1484 ÷ 4 = (1200 + 284)÷4 = ...
Here follows an interactive worksheet for this particular case. Take a few tries, I'm sure you'll figure out the pattern very quickly.
