Divide by 10, 100 and 1000 Divisors

We will learn how to divide by 10, 100 and 1000 divisors to find the quotient and remainder. Let us consider some examples:

3458 Divided by 10

So, 3458 ÷ 10 = 345 with remainder 8

9396 Divided by 10

So, 9396 ÷ 10 = 939 with remainder 6

When we divided a number by 10 then the very first digit from the extreme right of the dividend forms the remainder and the remaining digits from the quotient.

For example:

(i) Divide 2542 ÷ 100

2542 Divided by 100





So, 2542 ÷ 100 = 25 with remainder 42

(ii) Divide 4978 ÷ 100

4978 Divided by 100





So, 4978 ÷ 100 = 49 with remainder 78

When we divide a number by 100 then the first two digits from the extreme right of the dividend from the remainder and remaining digits from the quotient.

For example:

(i) Divide 7943 ÷ 1000

7943 Divided by 1000




So, 7943 ÷ 1000 = 7 with reminder 94

(ii) Divide 9869 ÷ 1000

9869 Divided by 1000




So, 9869 ÷ 1000 = 9 with remainder 869

When we divide a number by 1000 then the first three digits from the extreme right of the dividend from the remainder and the remaining digits form the quotient.

Word Problems:

1. 42 boys collected $4662 to donate in a fund. If each boy contributed equally, how much did each boy contribute?

Solution:

42 boys contributed together = $4662

Each boy contributed = $4662 ÷ 42.

4662 Divided by 42







So, each boy contributed $111.


2. A dealer bought 25 chairs for $12350. Find the cost of one chair.

Solution:

25 chairs cost = $12350

1 chair costs = $12350 ÷ 25.

12350 Divided by 25







So, the price of one chair = $494.
