Extracting the Right Dividend Worksheet
Reminders & Tips for "Extracting the Right" Dividend Worksheet:
 A Reminder: you should already know your division table to 100.
 Tips: "pull out" what's from the division table to 100
 for more clarifications on how to "extract the right" dividend  see examples below.
 Comment: This is very important for all (long) division, with or without remainder.
Example 1: 18 ÷ 5 = ?  We extract the "right" dividend from a "defect" one (15 from 18)
 A "right" dividend (here 15) is:
 divisible by the divider (here 5) without remainder
 less than "defect" dividend (here 18)
 and closest to a "defect" dividend (18)
(2 × 5 = 10 is less than 18, but 3 × 5 = 15 is closer)  Anyway, what's left  that's the remainder (here 3)
Example 2: 29 ÷ 7 = ?  We extract the "right" dividend from a "defect" one (28 from 29)
 A "right" dividend (here 28) is:
 divisible by the divider (here 7) without remainder
 less than "defect" dividend (here 29)
 and closest to a "defect" dividend (29)
(3 × 7 = 21 is less than 29, but 4 × 7 = 28 is closer)  Anyway, what's left  that's the remainder (here 1)
Example 3: 74 ÷ 10 = ?  We extract the "right" dividend from a "defect" one (70 from 74)
 A "right" dividend (here 70) is:
 divisible by the divider (here 10) without remainder
 less than "defect" dividend (here 74)
 and closest to a "defect" dividend (74)
(6 × 10 = 60 is less than 74, but 7 × 70 = 70 is closer)  Anyway, what's left  that's the remainder (here 4)
