Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will look at how to find remainders when you divide.

Example

How many are left when you divide 25 by 4 ?

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

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. Let's try some questions on this now. ### What is EdPlace?
