Division by Two-Digit Numbers

In division by two-digit numbers we will practice dividing two, three, four and five digits by two-digit numbers.


Consider the following examples on division by two-digit numbers:

Let us use our knowledge of estimation to find the actual quotient. 

1. Divide 94 by 12

Round the number 

94 ÷ 12 → 90 ÷ 10 

Estimated quotient = 9 

In order to find the actual quotient, multiply the divisor 12 by the estimated quotient. 

12 × 9 = 108 

12 × 8 = 96

12 × 7 = 84

108 > 94

96 > 94

The actual quotient, we find is 7.

Check:

Division by 2 Digits





Quotient - 7

Remainder - 10

12 × 7 + 10 = 94

division by 2 digits number








2. Divide 96 by 16

Solution:

Division by Two Digit Numbers

16 x 6 = 96, so, 6 will be the quotient.

We search for the possible quotient. The divisor is a number of two digits.

So, 96 is taken as dividend.


Therefore, Quotient = 6


3. Divide 88 by 17

Solution:

division by 2-digit numbers

17 x 5 = 85 and 17 x 6 = 102,

85 < 88 but 102 > 88

So, 5 will be the quotient



Therefore, Quotient = 5, Remainder = 3


4. Divide 192 by 24

Solution: 

Division by Two Digit Numbers

19 < 24, so, 192 will be taken as dividend.

24 x 8 = 192. So, 8 will be the quotient.





Therefore, Quotient = 8


5. 510 ÷ 32 ⟶ 500 ÷ 30 ⟶ 50 ÷ 3

Estimated quotient = 16

Try:

32 × 16 = 512

32 × 15 = 480

512 > 510

The actual quotient is 15



6. Divide 275 by 24

Solution:

division by two digit numbers

(a) 27 > 24, 24 x 1 = 24, 24 x 2 = 48

So, 1 will be quotient.

Here, 27 is 27T or, 270

So, 1T or 10 is the quotient.

(b) 275 -240 = 35, 24 x 1. = 24,

So, 1 is the quotient.

24 x 11 + 11 = 264 + 11 = 275

Therefore, result is verified

Therefore, Quotient = 11, Remainder =11



7. Divide 803 by 70

Solution:

division by two digit numbers

(a) 80 > 70,

So, 80T will be taken as dividend

70 x 1 = 70, 70 x 2 = 140

So, 1T will be quotient.

(b) 803 - 700 = 103, 70 x 1 = 70, 70 x 2 = 140

So, 1 will be quotient.

70 x 11 + 33 = 770 + 33 = 803

Therefore, result is verified


Therefore, Quotient =11, Remainder = 33



8. Divide 345 by 49

Solution:

division by two digit numbers

34 < 49, So, 345 will be taken as dividend.

By trial 49 x 7 = 343 which is near to 345

So, 7 will be quotient.

Verification: 49 x 7 + 2 = 343 + 2 = 345


Therefore, Quotient = 7, Remainder = 2



9. Divide 1432 by 28.

Solution:

Divide 5-Digit by 2-Digit Number

I: 1 < 28            14 < 28

Therefore, take 143

II: We have 28 × 6 = 168; 28 × 5 = 140

Since 140 < 143, write 5 as first digit of the quotient. Write the product 26 × 5 = 140 below 143 and subtract.

III: 143 – 140 = 3; Bring down 2

32 > 28 We have 28 × 1 = 28 < 32.

28 × 2 = 56 > 32

Since 28 < 32, write 1 as the second digit of the quotient. Write the product 28 × 1 = 28 below and subtract.

IV: 32 – 28 = 4

Since 4 < 28, stop the division.


10. Divide 4963 by 14

Solution:

(I method)

division by two digit numbers

(a) 14 x 3 = 42 and 14 x 4 = 56, 42 < 49 and 56 > 49

So, 3H will be quotient.

(b) 4963 - 4200 = 763, 14 x 5 = 70 and 14 x 6 = 84

So, 5T will be quotient.

(c) 763 - 700 = 63, 14 x 4 = 56, 14 x 5 = 70

56 < 63, 70 > 63

Therefore, 4 is the quotient.

Verification: 14 x 354 + 7 = 4956 + 7 = 4963


Therefore, Quotient = 354, Remainder = 7



(II method)

division by two digit numbers

(a) 14 x 3 = 42, 14 x 4 = 56,

Therefore, 3H will be quotient.

49 - 42 = 7, 6 is carried down

(b) 14 x 5 = 70, 14 x 6 = 84,

Therefore, 5T will be quotient.

76 - 70 = 6, 3 is carried down.

14 x 4 = 56, 14 x 5 = 70,

Therefore, 4 will be quotient.

63 - 56 = 7 is the remainder

Quotient = 354

Remainder = 7

Verification:

Quotient x divisor + remainder

= 354 x 14 + 7

= 4956 +7

= 4963 (dividend)

So, result is verified



11. Divide 47320 by 35

Solution:

division by two digit numbers

(a) 47 Th is divided by 35, 35 x 1 = 35 < 47,

35 x 2 = 70 > 47, so, 1 Th is quotient.

47 - 35 = 12, 3 is carried down

(b) 123H is divided by 35, 35 x 3 = 105 < 123

35 x 4 = 140 > 123, so, 3 H is quotient

123 - 105 = 18, 2 is carried down.

(c) 182 T is divided by 35, 35 x 5 = 175 < 182

35 x 6 = 210 > 182, therefore, 5T is quotient.

182 - 175 = 7, 0 is carried down.

(d) 70 is divided by 35, 35 x 2 = 70,

2 is the quotient

70 - 70 = 0

Verification: 35 x 1352 + 0 = 47320.

So verified.

Therefore, Quotient = 1352 Remainder = 0



12. Divide 50360 by 43

Solution:

division by two digit numbers

(a) 50Th is divided by 43, 43 x 1 = 43 < 50.

So, 1 Th is quotient, 50 - 43 = 7,3 is taken down.

(b) 73 H is divided by 43, 43 x 1 = 43 < 73

43 x 2 = 86 > 73.

So, 1H is quotient, 73 - 43 = 30, 6 is taken down.

(c) 306 T is divided by 43, 43 x 7 = 301 < 306

7 T is quotient, 306 - 301 = 5, 0 is taken down

(d) 50 is divided by 43, 1 is quotient

50 - 43 = 7 is remainder

Verification: 1171 x 43 + 7 = 50353 + 7 = 50360.

Result is verified.

Quotient =1171 Remainder = 7


13. Divide 923 by 13

Solution:

Let us divide 923 by 13.

Step I: Since, the divisor is a 2-digit number, we consider 92 the 2-digit number on the extreme left of the dividend.

92 > 13, we  know that 13 x 7 = 91

We write 7 in the quotient.

Subtract 91 from 92.

Step II: Bring down 3 and write on the right side of the remainder. 13 is the new dividend.

Step III: Divide 13 by 13.

We know 13 x 1 = 13. Write 1 in the quotient. Subtract 13 from 13. The remainder is 0.

Divide 923 by 13

Hence, quotient = 71 and remainder = 0.


14. Divide 1749 by 27 and check your answer.

Solution:

Let us divide 1749 by 27.

Step I: The divisor 27 is greater than the 2-digit number on the extreme left of the dividend. So, we take the 3-digit number which is 174 and divide by 27. Write 6 in the quotient and subtract 162 from 174.

Step II: Bring down 9 and write on the right side of the remainder. 129 is the new dividend.

Step III: Divide 129 by 27.

Write 4 in the quotient and subtract 108 from 129. Remainder is 21

Divide 1749 by 27

Hence, quotient = 64 and remainder = 21

Verification: 

We know that 

Dividend = Quotient x Divisor + Remainder

             = 64 x 27 + 21

             = 1728 + 21

             = 1749

1749 is the dividend as given in the question.


15. Divide 15642 by 32

Solution:

Divide 5-Digit by a 2-Digit Number

I: 1 < 32             15 < 32

Therefore, take 156

II: We have 32 × 5 = 160 > 156

32 × 4 = 128 < 156

Since 128 < 156, write 4 as first digit of the quotient. Write the product 32 × 4 = 128 below 156 and subtract.

III: 156 – 128 = 28. Bring down 4.

284 > 32. We have 32 × 9 = 288 > 284.

32 × 8 = 256 < 284.

Since 256 < 284, write 8 as the second digit of the quotient. Write the product 32 × 8 = 256 below 284 and subtract.

IV: 284 - 256 = 28. Bring down 2. 282 > 32. We have 32 × 9 = 288 > 282

32 × 8 = 256 < 282.

V: Write 8 as the third digit of the quotient. Write the product 32 × 8 = 256 below 282 and subtract.

282 – 256 = 26.

Since 26 < 32, stop the division.
