Worksheet Overview

This activity is about dividing numbers and adding extra zeros when a number is not exactly divisible.




Work out 774 ÷ 8



Set out your division calculation, inserting extra zeros at the end of 774 because 8 does not go exactly into 774. The extra zeros allow for more carrying to take place and you can then get an exact answer.



So 774 ÷ 8 = 96.75
