Problem solving on division will help us to get the idea on how to solve the basic division statement problems.

**1.** The teacher brought 36 books from the library. He asked Ron to put them on 3 tables. He was to put the same number of books on each table. How many books should Ron put on each table?

Number of books bought from the library = 36

Number of tables = 3

Therefore, number of books Ron put on each table = 36 ÷ 3 = 12

**2.** There are 48 bikes in 4 rows. How many bikes were in each row?

Number of bikes = 48

Number of rows = 4

Therefore, number of bikes in each row = 48 ÷ 4 = 12

**3.** Today 155
children went to see the Red Fort. They went in 5 buses. How many children were
in each bus if each bus had the same number of children?

Number of children went to see the Red Fort = 155

Number of buses = 5

Therefore, number of children in each bus = 155 ÷ 5 = 31

**4.** On Sunday, 126
scouts are to go on a hike. There are 6 troops of the same size. How many
scouts are in each troop?

Number of scouts to go on a hike = 126

Number of troops of the same size = 6

Therefore, number of scouts in each troop = 126 ÷ 6 = 21

**5.** How many 8
centimeter pieces of ribbon can be cut from 96 centimeters of ribbon?

Length of a ribbon = 96 cm

Length of a pieces of ribbon cut = 8 cm

Therefore, number of pieces of ribbon in 8 cm = 96 ÷ 8 = 12

**6.** Sharon had 56
bulbs to plant. She was going to put 4 in each flower pot. How many pots did
she need?

Number of bulbs Sharon had to plant = 56

Number of bulbs in each flower pot = 4

Therefore, number of pots she need = 56 ÷ 4 = 14

statement problem solving on division:**

**7.** The 168 chairs
in the hall had to be put in rows with 8 in each. How many rows were made?

Number of chairs in the hall = 168

Number of chairs in each row = 8

Therefore, number of rows = 168 ÷ 8 = 21

**8.** How many
packets will be made if 267 books are packed with 3 books in each?

Number of books = 267

Number of books in each packet = 3

Therefore, number of packets = 267 ÷ 3 = 89
