## 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)
