### How to use the Multiples of 10 Division Method

Faribault Public Schools

Mr.H.

Introduction
• Division (repeated subtraction)
• Using the multiples of 10 of the divisor for an easy way to divide.

Mr.H.

Agenda
• Examples
• Practice problems to do on your white board

Mr.H.

For a problem like 245 / 5
• First of all write the problem like this
• Make a list of the multiples of 10 on the side.

10

20

30

40

50

Mr.H.

10 [5]=

20 [5]=

30 [5]=

40 [5]=

50 [5]=

50

100

150

200

250

Then figure out the multiples.

Mr.H.

Determine what’s the biggest one that is equal or less that what you are dividing into…

10 [5]=

20 [5]=

30 [5]=

40 [5]=

50 [5]=

50

100

150

200

40

Draw a line down the side of your problem

Subtract the number you picked from your problem

Put the multiple of 10 on the outside

Mr.H.

10 [5]=

• 20 [5]=
• 30 [5]=
• 40 [5]=
• 50 [5]=

Mr.H.

Since our number is smaller than our first answer ’50’ we need to go to the multiples less than ten by taking zeros away from both sides. Then repeat previous steps.

Repeat until your answer is less than 1 times your number. If it is zero you have no remainder. Excellent! If it’s not zero put R then that number after your outside total!
