# Dividing 3-Digit by 1-Digit Number

Dividing 3-Digit by 1-Digit Numbers are discussed here step-by-step.

How to divide 3-digit numbers by single-digit numbers?

Let us follow the examples to learn to divide 3-digit number by one-digit number.

I: Dividing 3-digit Number by 1-Digit Number without Remainder:

1. Divide 248 by 2 and verify the result.

Solution:

We proceed as follows:

Step I: Arrange the two given numbers as shown.

Step II: Divide 2 hundreds by 2.

 Start by looking at the first number (hundreds place) in the dividend.Find a number in the table of 2 less than or equal to 2We know 2 × 1 = 2.So, 1 is the required number.2 × 1 = 2, write 1 in hundreds place of the quotient and 2 below 2.Subtract the number you got by multiplying the divisor, from the number in the dividend.Subtract 2 from 22 - 2 = 0

Step III: Divide 4 tens by 2.

 Bring down the next digit, from the number in the dividend.We have 4 there; now find a number in the table of 2 that divides it.2 × 1 = 22 × 2 = 4So, 2 is the required number.2 × 2 = 4, write 2 in tens place of the quotient and 4 below 4.

Subtract the number you got by multiplying the divisor, from the number in the dividend.

Subtract 4 from 4

4 - 4 = 0

Step IV: Divide 8 ones by 2.

Bring down 8
Now see where does 8 come in the table of 2.

2 × 1 = 2

2 × 2 = 4

2 × 3 = 6

2 × 4 = 8

White 4 in the quotient and 8 under 8 and subtract.

8 - 8 = 0

Therefore, 248 ÷ 2 = 124

II: Dividing a 3-digit Number by a 1-Digit Number with Remainder: (Long Division)

Let us follow the examples to learn to divide 3-digit numbers by one-digit number with remainder.

1. Divide the following and verify the result: Long Division

625 ÷ 4

Solution:

We proceed as follows:

Step I: Arrange the two given numbers as shown.

Step II: Divide 6 hundreds by 4.

 Start by looking at the first number (hundreds place) in the dividend.Find a number in the table of 4 less than or equal to 6We know 4 × 1 = 4.So, 1 is the required number.4 × 1 = 4, write 1 in hundreds place of the quotient and 4 below 6.Subtract the number you got by multiplying the divisor, from the number in the dividend.Subtract 4 from 66 - 4 = 2

Step III:

 Bring down the next digit (tens places), from the number in the dividend.We have 22 there; now find a number in the table of 4 that divides it.4 × 1 = 24 × 2 = 84 × 3 = 124 × 4 = 164 × 5 = 20So, 5 is the required number.4 × 5 = 20, write 5 in tens place of the quotient and 20 below 22.

Subtract the number you got by multiplying the divisor, from the number in the dividend.

Subtract 20 from 22

22 - 20 = 2

Step IV: Bring down 5

4 × 1 = 2

4 × 2 = 8

4 × 3 = 12

4 × 4 = 16

4 × 5 = 20

4 × 6 = 24

So, 6 is the required number.

4 × 6 = 24, write 6 in ones place of the quotient and 24 below 25.

Subtract the number you got by multiplying the divisor, from the number in the dividend.

Subtract 24 from 25

25 - 24 = 1.

Therefore, the quotient = 156 and remainder = 1.

Check: Dividend = Quotient × Divisor - Remainder

= 156 × 4 + 1

= 624 + 1

= 625 = Dividend

3. 645 ÷ 6

Check:

107 × 6 = 642

642 + 3 = 645

Here we know, 645 ÷ 6 = 107 remainder is 3

645 is dividend

6 is divisor

107 is quotient

3 is remainder

The same method is used when dividing larger numbers.

Division Activity

Objective: Dividing a 3-digit number by 9 using short cut method.

Materials Required: Pen and paper only.

Procedure/Demonstration: We can divide any 3-digit number by 9 quickly.

Type 1: When the sum of the digits is less than 9.

In this case, the quotient is obtained by adding the number formed by hundreds and tens digits to the hundreds digit. The sum of the three digits gives the remainder.

213 ÷ 9, gives quotient = 21 + 2 = 23 and remainder = 2 + 1 + 3 = 6

Type 2: When the sum of the digits is greater than or equal of 9 but less than 18.

Here, we first add the number formed by hundreds and tens digits to the hundreds digit. 1 more than this sum is the quotient. To get the remainder, subtract 9 from the sum of the digits.

537 ÷ 9 gives quotient = 53 + 5 + 1 = 59 and

remainder = (9 + 8 + 7) - 9 = 15 - 9 = 6
