38,028/ 4= ?
My class is working on big division (/) problems. This is the problem Professor McGonagall: 38,028/4=?. This is how I figured this out.
First you need to subtract the problem into the biggest multiple of 4. I know I didn't explain it very well but that's the best I can do.
38,028-36,000=2,028 so the basic fact is 36/4=9
2,028-2,000=28 so the basic fact is 20/4=5
28-28=0 so the basic fact is 28/4=7
Then we need to solve the problem. I broke the 38,028 into a 36,000, 2,000,and a 28.
We need to solve 36,000/4= first. this is how I solved it:
Next we need to solve 2,000/4=. this is how I solved it.
Last we need to solve 28/4=? That's easy: 28/4=7
Very last we need to get the answer. 9,000+500+7=9,507!!!

I like the way you did your problem. You showed how to do all of it and explained it so everyone would be able to understand it.
