DIVISION WITH A REMINDER

A toy company distributes a range of toys to shops. The shops need to get equal numbers of toys. Sometimes there are toys left over. This is called a remainder.

The toy company needs to know:

1. how many toys each shop gets; and

2. how many toys remain (if there any)

a. Show how you could divide 298 trolleys equally between 4 shops.

298 divided into 4. Half of 298 is 149. And half of 149 is 74.5. But because that is not an even number we have to go with the lowest equal number which is 74. But there are still 0.5 toys left so I multiply the number by 4( because there were four shops). so there are 74 toys that each shops get and 2 leftovers.

B. SHOW HOW YOU DIVIDE 629 TRICYCLES EQUALLY BETWEEN 6 SHOPS.

629 between 6 shops. I Divided 600 between 6 then I got 100. but I still had 29, so I divided 29 by 6 then I got 4. so each shop gets 104 tricycles and there are only 1 left over.

C. Show how you could divide 567 robots equally between 8 shops.

567 between 8. 560 divided into 8 = 70. but I still got 7 to be halved into 8 which is 0.875. But because 0.875 is an uneven number, we leave 70 by itself so the answer is 70, but we still got 8 0.875 left so I add them all up to make 7.
