DIVISION What Is Division? Division is splitting up numbers into equal parts. The process of finding out how many times one number will go into another number. Division is a series of repeated subtraction. The parts of a division problem include the divisor, dividend, quotient and remainder. The answer to a division problem is called the quotient. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.

How to Divide: There are five steps to dividing. 1. Divide. 2. Multiply. 3. Subtract. 4. Compare. 5. Bring down the next number. Example: 1. Divide 84 ÷ 6 is the problem. Look at the first number only in the dividend so the problem is 8 ÷ 6. The answer is 1. Write it above the 8. 2. Multiply. 1 x 6 = 6. Write the number 6 under the 8. 3. Subtract. 8 - 6. The answer is 2. Write it down under the 6 4. Compare what is left over after subtracting with the divisor. It must be less than the divisor, if not, then go back to step 1 and choose a larger number to multiply. 5. Bring down the 4. Then go through steps 1 through 4 again. 24 ÷ 6 = 4. 6. Multiply. Subtract. Compare. There is not another number to bring down. 7. The final answer is 14. 84 ÷ 6 = 14. Try This! © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
