In this worksheet, students practise division of three-digit numbers by a number that does not divide exactly. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Number: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

Curriculum subtopic:   Divide to Four Digits (Long Division)

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

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

Example

Work out 774 ÷ 8

Set out the division calculation, using either short or long division. Insert a decimal point and extra zeros at the end of 774 to turn the remainder into a decimal. So 774 ÷ 8 = 96.75

• Question 5
581  ÷  2  =   ?
290.5
EDDIE SAYS
Divide 5 ÷ 2 = 1 rem 1 and bring down the 8 Divide 18 ÷ 2 = 9 rem 0 and bring down the 1 Divide 1 ÷ 2 = 0 rem 1 and add the .0, so 581.0, and bring down the 0 Divide 10 ÷ 2 = 5 581.0 ÷ 2 = 290.5
• Question 6
855  ÷  6  =   ?
142.5
EDDIE SAYS
Divide 8 ÷ 6 = 1 rem 2 and bring down the 5 Divide 25 ÷ 6 = 4 rem 1 and bring down the 5 Divide 15 ÷ 6 = 2 rem 3 and add the .0, so 855.0, and bring down the 0 Divide 30 ÷ 6 = 5 855.0 ÷ 6 = 142.5
