Big Division Problem.
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!!
