 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 GMT0 • comment (3) • Reads 5699 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.

Because it is snowy there, and Alaska Is HUGE!!! And also very cold because I also like the cold I don’t know why but I do! The history of the race is cause Nome was very sick and he needed medicine. The weather in Alaska could be snowy, cold and sometimes very warm to. The Geography of Alaska is The Brook Range and the Alaska Range. The Dog sled teams and the mushers well my mushers name is DeeDee Jonrowe and The dog sled teams they drop off dogs because they could be very ill or be in bad condition. Again why Alaska because the snow is there, BIG, and also cold! And that’s why we should go to Alaska. THE END!!! Article posted March 13, 2008 at 08:27 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 1440

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 GMT0 • comment (3) • Reads 1263
 Article posted February 28, 2008 at 04:09 AM GMT0 • comment (2) • Reads 1416 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 05:42 PM GMT0 • comment (2) • Reads 1300 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 GMT0 • comment (2) • Reads 1300

 Article posted February 26, 2008 at 05:51 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 1363 Professor McGonagall is really getting annoying with the division we are doing:) Today she started us off with 38028/4(She said that the / means divided by so) To make up a really good BIG division problem you have to think of the multiplues of the number that you are dividing by. In this case it's 4 so now you think of the basic facts of 4 The only pairs that I split the number into are 36000/4 2000/4 28/4=7 I got those because 38 can be split into 36 with 2 left over. I got the 20 from the left over 2 from the 38 and the 0 in 38028. Lastly I got the 28 from the last two numbers in 38028. To figure out 36000 I started with 36 and built up. 36/4=9 360/4=90 3600/4=900 36000/4=9000 So to start out with a 9000. Now I do the same with the 2000 and 28. I start with 20 and... 20/4=5 200/4=50 2000/4=500 ...you have a 500 and a 9000=9500 Then you do the same with the 28... 28/4=7 and you have a 9000, 500 and a 7. Add them all up and you get 9507. Do you get it? That is a really long way to division even though long division is doing all that in only a little work. Article posted February 26, 2008 at 05:51 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 1363
