**Use partitioning strategies to solve division problems.**
1) Fill in the gaps below.....

a) 132 divided by 4 = 33

120 - 12

3 - 3

30 + 3 = 33

b) 161 divided by 7 = 24

140 - 21

20 - 3

21 + 3 = 24

c) 87 divided by 3 = 36

60 - 27

20 - 9

27 + 9 = 36

d) 132 divided by 6 = 22

120 - 12

20 - 2

20 + 2 = 22

e) 217 divided by 7 = 31

210 - 7

30 - 1

30 + 1 = 31

f) 176 divided by 8 = 22

160 - 16

20 - 2

20 + 2 = 22

g) Why is 128 divided by 4 the same as 120 divided by 4 plus 8 divided by 4?

__Because you’re just splitting the numbers up to make it easier and if you split the numbers up and divide it by the number it’s suppose to be divided by then it will equal the same.__
2) Complete the following question....

a) 165 divided by 5 = 33

b) 962 divided by 2 = 481

c) 963 divided by 3 = 323

d) 242 divided by 8 = 41

e) 172 divided by 4 = 43

f) 154 divided by 7 = 22

g) 175 divided by 5 = 35

h) 330 divided by 6 = 55

i) 284 divided by 4 = 71
