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.

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.

  • Quiz 1 - Where would you start with these?
  • Quiz 2 - The values will indicate that no remainders will be found.
  • Quiz 3 - A lot of round numbers can be found here.
