The length and width of the rectangles are factors of 24.
3. Could you have built a rectangle with the length of 5? Why or why not?
Using the following numbers, create the list of equations that represent the rectangles you can make:
Mr. Hall’s first period class won the recycling challenge. The PTSA baked 804 cookies for the winning class. If each of the 28 students in Mr. Hall’s first period are to receive an equal share of cookies, how many cookies should each student receive? Give a written explanation to justify your solution.
The PTSA sponsored a food drive challenge and wanted each student in the winning class to receive 42 pieces of candy. The PTSA has collected 924 pieces of candy so far. If the winning class were selected today, how many students would need to be in the class for each student to receive 42 pieces of candy? Give a written explanation to justify your solution.
Let’s look at the same problem again… this time, can we use a fraction to quantify the remainder? 165 ÷ 7 =
Again, let’s deal with that remainder…
177 ÷ 8 =
Partial quotients method (sometimes also called chunking):
