 Title: Divided by 4 (02/26/08) Description: Students are just figuring out how to break up large numbers into easier chunks...it's our first step toward long division. Please give each other helpful comments! We all need to figure it out!

 Article posted February 26, 2008 at 05:50 PM GMT • comment (3) • Reads 6814 I'm going to show you my division problem. The problem is 38,028 divided by 4 the first step is you find the basic fact in the problem. The second step is when you need to break it up into numbers that can be divided by 4. I subtracted 38,000 from 36,000 and I got 2028. Then I subtracted 2028 from 2000 I got 28. 36,20,28 are all divisible by 4. The third step is when you have to figure out what 36,000 divided by 4 is. What I did is that I turned 36,000 into 36,36 divided by 4 is 9 so you just have to do 36 divided by 4 all the way up to 36,000. Then do that with the other numbers 20 divided by 4 is 5 and 28 divided by 4 is 7 add those answers together and you get 9507 that's what I got.

 Article posted February 26, 2008 at 05:44 PM GMT • comment (3) • Reads 1437 My class is working on big division (/) problems. This is the problem Professor McGonagall: 38,028/4=?. This is how I figured this out. 38,028/4=? 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: 36/4=9 360/4=90 3,600/4=900 36,000/4=9,000 Next we need to solve 2,000/4=. this is how I solved it. 20/4=5 200/4=50 2,000/4=500 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!!! 38,028/4=9,507 Article posted February 26, 2008 at 05:44 PM GMT • comment (3) • Reads 1437
 Article posted February 28, 2008 at 04:09 AM GMT • comment (2) • Reads 1530 Key: /=divide #=number -= subtract Hey! My teacher is making us do a division problem!! It also has to be big!! I have to talk you throught the steps too! OK...My problem is:34,424/4=? Ok, so first you have to know how your going to split up the #. Like for 34,000 you could split it up in to 32,000. When a # is not divisible by the # your dividing then you have to find the nearest # that is divisible by the #. Then after that you have to subtract 32,000 from 34,424 which = 2,424! After that you have to the next # divisible by 4..that is 2,400. Then you have to find the next # divisible by 4 which is 24!! Now you have to do this: You have to divide 32/4=8. Then 320/4=80. Then 3,200/44=800. Then 32,000/4=8,000. What I am doing is I am taking a big # and I am making it smaller to divide. Then it gets bigger each time until I get to the # I origianlly had to divide!! Now we have do do the same thing except with different #'s. So now we have to do: 24/4=6. Then 240/4=60. Then 2,400/4=600!! So far we have 8,000 and 600. Now we have to divide 24/4=6!! So now we have to add up all our answers. Which are 8,000 and 600 and 6. The answer is 8,606!!! So thats how you solve a big division problem!!

 Article posted February 26, 2008 at 05:51 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1491 This is a wierd way to do division so you can learn how to do long division. 20/4=5 24/4=6 4/4=1 so..... 20,000 2,400 + 4 _________ 22,404 So the problem is 22,404. 20/4=5 200/4=50 2000/4=500 20000/4=5000 24/4=6 240/4=60 2400/4=600 4/4=1 Now all you have to do is add up the answers. 5000 600 + 1 ______ 5601 Article posted February 26, 2008 at 05:51 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1491

 Article posted February 26, 2008 at 05:42 PM GMT • comment (2) • Reads 1442 Hey everybody. I will explain to you how to divide by breaking up a hige ugly number here it is... 38,028/4= First you have to know your basic facts. You can divide 36 by 4 which equals 9. That's one of your basic facts. We need two more. You can take the 20 divided by 4 which equals, 5. One more. We can take the 28 and divide it by 4 which equals 7. Now you have to divide 38 by 4=9, go up until 36000. So that means you have to divide three more times but you have to add an extra 0 to the 36 and the 9. Then you gave to do the same thing for 20, exept you only go to 2000. Then you have to divide 28/4=7. You only do that once. Then you have to add up all the answers to get the main answer. I won't tell you, you have to do it yourself if you want to find ou!!! Thanks! AmericanGirl PS. The / means divide. Article posted February 26, 2008 at 05:42 PM GMT • comment (2) • Reads 1442
