Today, we are going to continue to divide using long division but some of these questions will have answers that include remainders.

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. We have now made 37. If you know your 5x table, you will know that 5 x 7 = 35 so we place a 7 at the top and exchange the remainder of 2 into the units column. 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?

Have a go at completing the 2 questions above. On Q1 make sure you start with the tens column then for Q2 start with the hundreds column. If you know your times tables, this will make life a lot easier!
