Division and Remainders

Imagine you have 9 cookies. πͺ

You want to divide these cookies equally among 2 people.

Can you do it? π€

Let's find out! π€

No! There is **1 cookie left-over.**

So,

9 Γ·2=4with1 left-over

π Sometimes, we cannot divide a number fully. There is a left-over.

The left-over number, at the end of a division, is called the **remainder.**

So, in the above example, the **remainder is 1.**

β In equation form, we write this as:

9 Γ· 2 = 4R 1

Let's now learn how to find remainders in division. π

π Look at this division problem.

14 Γ· 4 = ?

You know that **12 Γ· 4 = 3. **

And you know that **16 Γ· 4 = 4**

So what's 14 Γ· 4 ?

There's a remainder of 2!

So:

14 Γ· 4 = 3R 2

Great work! π

π Let's look at another equation.

23 Γ· 5 = ?

Let's solve this problem using **repeated subtraction.**

Can you tell what is the **quotient,** and what is the **remainder **here? π€

You got it! π€

The **quotient is 4,** and the **remainder is 3.**

23 Γ· 5 = 4R 3

Nice job! π

Great work! π Now go ahead and try some questions.
