 # Dividing by 3: How Many Remain?

In this worksheet, students divide two-digit numbers by 3 and note down how many remain. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Number: Multiplication and Division

Curriculum subtopic:   Multiply/Divide Formally

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this activity, you will carry out some simple divisions by 3 with remainders.

e.g. Calculate this division and find the remainder:

17 ÷ 3

We have to find out how many three's go into 17.

We can do this using a number line. It goes 5 times and there is a remainder of 2.
