  # Find Whole Number Remainders After Division

In this worksheet, students state the whole number remainders after carrying out divisions. Key stage:  KS 3

Curriculum topic:   Number

Curriculum subtopic:   Use Calculators/Technology for Accuracy

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

Look carefully at this calculator method for finding the quotient and remainder when you carry out a division.

Example

792 ÷ 26

Divide 792 by 26 on your calculator.

Subtract the whole number(quotient), 30, to leave the decimal part, 0.461538460.....

DO NOT COPY DOWN THE DECIMAL PART AND RE-ENTER IT. This will lead to inaccuracies.

Now multiply the decimal remainder by 26 to give the whole number remainder of 12.

So 792 ÷ 26 = 30 remainder 12

(30 is the quotient and 12 is the remainder)
