### What is an example of a number sentence?

Number sentences can be true or they may not be true. For example: 10 + 5 = 15. So, a number sentence contains numbers, mathematical operations, equal to or inequality sign and a number after the equality or inequality sign.

#### How do you do 3 digit by 3 digit division?

Divide the dividend’s first number (which is 3 in our example) by the divisor’s first number (1). 3 divided by 1 is 3. Then, we multiply our divisor (125) by 3 and see that it fits in (in other words, that it’s less than) the dividend’s 3 numbers. So, we place the result underneath the dividend’s 3 digits and subtract.

**How do you explain division?**

Division is breaking a number up into an equal number of parts. Example: 20 divided by 4 = ? If you take 20 things and put them into four equal sized groups, there will be 5 things in each group.

**How do you divide odd numbers?**

An odd number will always have a remainder of 1 when dividing by 2. So breaking up the number in this way helps you divide the number quickly, since an even number will have no remainder when dividing by 2. To break up the number into an even number +1, subtract 1 from the number. Divide the even number by 2.

## What are the two types of division?

Divisor – A number by which another number is to be divided. Quotient – The result obtained by dividing one number by another number. Quotative Division – When dividing a number into groups of a measured quantity. For example, when we divide 8 into groups of 2 and we want to determine how many groups that will make.

### How do you solve 5 divided by 3?

Using a calculator, if you typed in 5 divided by 3, you’d get 1.6667.

#### What is a division number sentence?

A division sentence is a number sentence that uses the operation of division. Division has an opposite operation, which is multiplication, where multiplication and division undo or reverse each other. We can use the opposite operation of multiplication, or we can use repeated addition, to complete a division sentence.

**What is the division statement?**

The general formula of division is: Dividend = (Divisor × Quotient) + Remainder.

**What is simple division?**

The division is a method of distributing a group of things into equal parts. It is one of the four basic operations of arithmetic, which gives a fair result of sharing. The division is an operation inverse of multiplication.

## How do you teach division with 2 digit divisors?

Divide the first number of the dividend (or the two first numbers if the previous step took another digit) by the first digit of the divisor. Write the result of this division in the space of the quotient. Multiply the digit of the quotient by the divisor, write the result beneath the dividend and subtract it.

### How do you explain long division?

The long division method is used when you are dividing a large number (usually three digits or more) by a two-digit (or more) number. It is set out in a similar way to short division (the ‘bus stop’ method).

#### How do you read division problems?

For all three division symbols, we say “divided by.” The division in a is read from left to right: “twelve divided by six.” The division in b is read from top to bottom: “twelve divided by six.” The division in c is written with a division box. We read the number inside the box first: “twelve divided by six.”

**How do you do single digit division?**

Single Digit Division

- STEP 1: Put 1728 in the dividend position, and the 6 in place of the divisor.
- STEP 2: Take the first digit of the dividend, in this case, 1.
- STEP 5: The next step is to bring down the next digit of the dividend, which is the 2.
- STEP 6: We repeat step 5 with the next digit of the dividend, which is 8.

**How do you solve 4 divided by 3?**

4 divided by 3 is equal to 1 with a remainder of 1 (4 / 3 = 1 R.

## What are symbols for division?

The division sign (÷) is a symbol consisting of a short horizontal line with a dot above and another dot below, used to indicate mathematical division.

### How do you do 4 digit by 2 digit division?

To divide a four-digit number by a two-digit number (for example 3654 47), follow these steps:

- Place the divisor (47) before the division bracket and place the dividend (3654) under it.
- Examine the first two digits of the dividend (36).
- Multiply the 7 by 47 and place the result (329) below the 365 of the dividend.

#### What is the division line called?

Vinculum is a word used broadly to describe any horizontal line in mathematical symbols. The line between numerator and denominator, the line above the recurring decimal, etc are some examples of vincula. More commonly, the line is called a fraction or division bar.

**What is the answer to a division sentence called?**

For example: The number which is divided is called the dividend. The number which divides is called the divisor. The number which is the result of the division is called the quotient. If there is any number left over, it is called the remainder.
