How to Use

Chimney Division

By Mr. Kissner

Version 1.3

What is chimney division?

Chimney division is the process of using

multiples to solve

long division problems

The KEY to chimney division lies in understanding multiples

Multiples are all the possible products

for a given factor

The number

being multiplied

Here is an example

The multiples of 3

3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24…

The multiples of 8

8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56…

Remember that multiples go one forever!

Here is a division problem

With the standard division solving, if you make a minor error with dividing the whole problem is wrong and you would then have to start over. With chimney division minor errors can be fixed easier.

This is how chimney division works

Remember to leave

room on the

top of the division

symbol to make

a column of numbers

1. Write a division problem using the division bar

5

345

This is how chimney division works

Ask yourself the question: What is a multiple of 5 that is less than 345?

2. Think of a multiple of the divisor that is LESS THAN the dividend

300 is a multiple

of 5 that is less

than 345.

5x60=300

5

345

This is how chimney division works

3. Put the multiple under the dividend and factor on top of the division bar

60

300

5x60=300

5

345

This is how chimney division works

4. Now subtract the multiple from the dividend to get the remainder

5. If the remainder is greater than or equal to the divisor, repeat steps 1 to 4

The remainder

is 45

the divisor

is 5

45>5

So Repeat

the first four

steps

Let’s try another problem

The great part of chimney division is the answer is all that matters! This problem can be solved just by using tens and ones

If you got

that quotient

Try this problem on your own.

Write the problem in the middle of the paper to give you enough room for your chimney
