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**
