Have a look at the In focus question above. There are 3 different methods used to solve the calculation.
Go through each method and see whether they are correct. Are there any that are incorrect?
Lets now learn how to solve this calculation. Think about the long division which we have learnt the last few days.
There are no groups of 5 that can be made from 3 so we need to exchange the 3 into the tens column and place a zero at the top.
Next, we know that 5 x 5 = 25 so we can make 5 groups of 5 from 26 which will leave 1 remainder.
This is what our final answer should look like.
Now have a look at the above problem.
Can 376 be divided equally by 5?
What do we know about the numbers that appear in the 5x table?
Now you are ready to complete some examples on your own.
Complete worksheet 19 in your home learning book.
Take a picture of your work and email it to your teacher through purple mash.
You will need to show your working out using the long division method. Remember to set it out correctly. If you are unsure go back and have a look at the previous examples.
