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.

Observe the following table carefully to divide by 10, 100 and 1000 divisors.

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.
