## Dividend Breaking 100s Worksheet

Reminders & Tips for - Dividend Breaking 100s worksheet:

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

• Tips: Fist we "chip off" 100 (or 200, 300...) 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 100 (i.e. = 100, 200, 300...).

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

• Example 1:   835 ÷ 5 = ?

• We "chip off" (100 × 5)  500  from  835
(we can't chip off 200 × 5 because that's bigger than 835)

• So, now we have this situation: (500 + 335) ÷ 5

• Following with: 500÷5  +  335÷5

• 500÷5 = 100 (and is divisible by 100)

• and 335÷5 should be solved according to Dividend Breaking 10s Worksheet

• Example 2:   494 ÷ 2 = ?

• We "chip off" (200 × 2)  400  from  494
(200 × 2 is closer to 494 than 100 × 2 = 200, and 300 × 2 = 600 is bigger than 54)

• So, now we have this situation: (400 + 94) ÷ 2

• Following with: 400÷2  +  94÷2

• 400÷2 = 200 (and is divisible by 100)

• and 94÷2 should be solved according to Dividend Breaking 10s Worksheet

• Example 3:   993 ÷ 3 = ?

• We "chip off" (300 × 3)  900  from  993
(300 × 3 is closer to 927 than 100 or 200 × 3, and 400 × 3 = 1200 is bigger than 927)

• So, now we have this situation: (900 + 93) ÷ 3

• Following with: 900÷3  +  93÷3

• 900÷3 = 300 (and is divisible by 100)

• and 93÷3 should be solved according to Dividend Breaking 10s Worksheet
