Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet you will learn to use factor pairs to help you divide larger numbers.

You know that 2 × 3 = 6.

This means that 200 × 3 = 600.

So 600 ÷ 3 = 200.

 

Example 1

Use the factor pair 3 × 4 = 12 to work out 120 ÷ 30.

 

Answer

3 × 4 = 12

30 × 4 = 120

120 ÷ 30 = 4

 

 

Example 2

Use the factor pair 5 × 3 = 15 to work out 1500 ÷ 5.

 

Answer

5 × 3 = 15

5 × 300 = 1500

1500 ÷ 5 = 300

Use the factor pair 2 × 3 = 6 to work out

 

60 ÷ 30

Use the factor pair 2 × 3 = 6 to work out

 

60 ÷ 2

Use the factor pair 2 × 3 = 6 to work out

 

600 ÷ 3

Use the factor pair 2 × 3 = 6 to work out

 

600 ÷ 2

Use the factor pair 2 × 4 = 8 to work out

 

80 ÷ 4

Use the factor pair 2 × 4 = 8 to work out

 

800 ÷ 4

Use the factor pair 2 × 4 = 8 to work out

 

800 ÷ 2

Use the factor pair 3 × 5 = 15 to work out

 

150 ÷ 3

Use the factor pair 3 × 5 = 15 to work out

 

150 ÷ 5

Use the factor pair 8 × 7 = 56 to work out

 

560 ÷ 7
