Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

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.
