Long Division: Three-Digit Numbers and Remainders

In this worksheet, students practise division of three-digit numbers by a number that does not divide exactly.

Worksheet Overview

This activity is about adding dividing numbers and turning the remainder into a decimal.

 

Example

Work out 774 ÷ 8

 

Answer 

Set out the division calculation, using either short or long division.

Insert a decimal point and extra zeroes at the end of 774 to turn the remainder into a decimal.

This is to show that there are no tenths, hundredths etc. so that we can continue carrying the remainder across.

 

 

So 774 ÷ 8 = 96.75
