Definitions Divide To Divide is to share or group a number into equal parts. Eg) If you divide 10 by 2 you get 5. Divisible A number is divisible if it can be divided without a remainder. Eg) 10 can be divided by 2, it is divisible by 2. 10 can not be divided by 3 without a remainder so 10 is not divisible by 3. Remainder A remainder is the amount left over after dividing a number. Eg) If you divide 10 by 3 the answer is 2 with 1 remainder Share Groups To share is to divide into equal groups. Eg) If you share 10 sweets between 2 people, each person gets 5. Grouping is the process of dividing into equal sets (groups). Eg) If you share 10 sweets between 2 people, each person gets 5. Left over The left over is the same as the remainder. Eg) If you divide 10 by 3, the answer is 3 with 1 left over. Quotient The Quotient is the number resulting from dividing one number by another (the answer) Eg) In 10 ÷ 5 = 2, the quotient is 2. Dividend The Dividend is the number being divided. Eg) In 10 ÷ 5 = 2, 10 is the dividend. Divisor The Divisor is the number you are dividing by. Eg) In 10 ÷ 5 = 2, 5 is the divisor is the dividend. Obelus The Obelus is the name of the ÷ sign. Short Division Long Division Main Menu

Short Division What is division? Division is a Mathematical Operation (like add, subtract and multiply). Division determines how many times one quantity is contained in another. It is the inverse of multiplication. Mathematical Operations include: Divisions can be written in many different ways 261 ÷ 3 Definitions 261 3 3 261 Long Division Main Menu

Short Division Repeated Subtraction You can use repeated subtraction. For example: 30 ÷ 6 Subtract 6 30 – 6 = 24 Subtract 6 24 – 6 = 18 Subtract 6 18 – 6 = 12 Subtract 6 12 – 6 = 6 Subtract 6 6– 6 = 0 There is nothing left so no remainder Count the number of subtractions Definitions Short Division Long Division 5 30 ÷ 6 = 5 Practice Main Menu

Short Division Repeated Subtraction Another example: 90 ÷ 17 Short Division 90 – 17 = 73 Subtract 17 73 – 17 = 55 Subtract 17 55 – 17 = 38 Subtract 17 38 – 17 = 21 Subtract 17 21 – 17 = 4 There is 4 left over so this is the remainder Count the number of subtractions Definitions Subtract 17 5 Long Division 90 ÷ 17 = 5 r 4 Practice Main Menu

Short Division The grid method Using a grid can be helpful if you are confident with your times tables: Example: 754 ÷ 12 ÷ Draw a grid: 700 50 4 12 We can make 700 ÷ 12 easier ÷ 720 12 60 30 We can now divide our second column 30 ÷ 12 4 Now, the final column: ÷ 720 30 4+6 12 60 2 0 r 10 Definitions Short Division ÷ 720 30 12 60 2 4+6 Notice that 30 ÷ 12 is 2 remainder 6. This six carries Therefore: 754 ÷ 12 = 62 r 10 over to the next column Long Division Practice Main Menu

Long Division Repeated Subtraction The Traditional Method Definitions Short Division Main Menu

Long Division Repeated Subtraction Lets try: 543 ÷ 16 543 Start with we know 10 x 16 = 160 - 160 We cannot subtract another 160 so look - 32 for a lower multiple - 16 (10 x 16) 383 (10 x 16) 223 (10 x 16) 63 (2 x 16) 31 (1 x 16) 15 15 cannot be divided by 16 so this is the remainder We have used 10 + 2 + 1 lots of 16. This means we divided 33 times 543 ÷ 16 = 33 remainder 15 Definitions Short Division Long Division Practice Main Menu

Long Division Repeated Subtraction Lets try: 1748 ÷ 42 1748 Start with we know 10 x 42 = 420 - 420 We cannot subtract another 420 so look - 42 for a lower multiple (10 x 42) 1328 (10 x 42) 908 (10 x 42) 488 26 cannot be divided 68 (1 x 42) by 42 so this is the 26 remainder We have used 10 + 1 lots of 42. This means we divided 41 times 1748 ÷ 42 = 41 remainder 26 Definitions Short Division Long Division Practice Main Menu

Long Division Lets try: 9265 ÷ 37 9265 Start with we know 100 x 37 = 3700 - 3700 We cannot subtract another 3700 so - 740 look for a lower multiple - 740 We cannot subtract another 740 so look - 370 for a lower multiple Repeated Subtraction (100 x 37) (20 x 37) (10 x 37) 5564 1865 1125 385 15 15 cannot be divided by 37 so this is the remainder We have used 100 + 20 + 10 lots of 37. This means we divided 250 times 9265 ÷ 37 = 250 remainder 15 Definitions Short Division Long Division Practice Main Menu

Long Division • The Divide - Multiply – Subtract Cycle Notice DMS is alphabetical. This might help you remember the order! Definitions Short Division Long Division Practice Main Menu

Long Division Traditional method This is a similar method to 'short' division, but, rather than writing the remainder at the top, we work it out underneath. Don’t forget the DMS cycle Starting with 72 ÷ 4 The first step is write out the division. Step 2 is to divide 7 by 4 Step 3 is to multiply 4 x 1, this will show us what we’ve worked out so far. Step 4. Now we subtract this to see what we’ve still got to divide Step 5. Divide 32 by 4 Step 6: Multiply 8 x 4 4 x 1=4 4 x 8 = 32 Step 7: Subtract this to see if we need to continue to divide Definitions Short Division 1 8 4 72 4 32 32 0 Long Division Practice 7÷ 4=1 r 3 32 ÷ 4 = 8 Finished!
