In this worksheet we will solve division problems where we must divide numbers with up to 4 digits by 2-digit numbers using long division.

There will be remainders which then have to be interpreted properly.

**Example**

3904 eggs are packed into boxes of 12.

How many boxes will there be and how many eggs will be left over?

**Answer**

We must divide 3904 ÷ 12

We set out the calculation like this and then divide using long division.

We have shown that 3904 ÷ 12 = **325 r4**

**There will be 325 boxes and 4 eggs will be left over.**

*NB 4 eggs out of 12 is the same as the fraction 4/12 = 1/3.*
