## Triple Digits Divided By Single Digits

#### Grade 4 Algebra - 4.OA.B.4

How to Divide a Triple-Digit Number by Single Digits - The division is a basic mathematical operation that is taught to create an idea of how to distribute something in several equal sectors. Normally during a division sum, a number that you have to divide is called a dividend and is kept on the right side of the sum. And the number that divides the other number into smaller segments is called a divisor and is written on the left side. The answer, also called ‘quotient', comes at the top, and the remainder comes at the bottom. A remainder is a leftover part that can't be accommodated in the division if someone wants their answer to be a whole number. The step by step process of dividing a triple-digit number by a single-digit number is simple. First, we break the triple-digit number and consider it a digit at a time. Then we divide it digit by digit by the divisor and write the answer to every sub-divisions at the top, which makes the final value for quotient after the last digit is divided. If the last digit cannot be divided completely, giving a whole number as an answer, a remainder is written carrying the leftover value.

### Printable Worksheets And Lessons  #### Homework Sheets

The horizontal format is used here. You will see an open parentheses to the right of the divisor to help children focus on the quotient. This works nicely.

• Homework 1 - Use the outline to help you shape the problem.
• Homework 2 - If there is a remainder, just give it a bit more time.
• Homework 3 - A fully worked out example is provided.

#### Practice Worksheets

Again, practice sheets only have five problems and a lot of space to work with.

#### Math Skill Quizzes

Each quiz sticks with the horizontal and extra parentheses format to make these problems very manageable.
