In this worksheet you will look at how to find remainders when you divide.

 

Example

How many are left when you divide 25 by 4 ?

 

Answer 1

When we divide 25 by 4, we see how many 4s go into 25.

 

Write 25 in groups of 4

 

X X X X  4

X X X X  8

X X X X  12  

X X X X  16  

X X X X  20  

X X X X  24  

 

That's 24 placed into groups of 4.

And there is one left over to get to 25.

 

X            25

 

There is one left over so the remainder is 1

 

Answer 2

Another way is to use a number line. 

 

Count up in 4s, until you get to 24.

 

4    8    12    16    20    24 ...

 

There is one more to go to get to 25.

The remainder of 1 is shown in blue at the end.
