Example Question #21 : Solve Multistep Word Problems Using The Four Operations: Ccss.Math.Content.4.Oa.A.3

Melissa is making holiday cookies. She made  cookies and she's going to put them into small containers to give out to her friends. Each container holds  cookies. How many containers can she fill completely? 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

When we have a set of something that we are splitting up into groups, we divide. In this case, we are splitting up cookies into containers. We have  cookies that we are dividing into containers. Each container holds  cookies, so we divide  by  to find out how many containers we can fill. We will let  represent the number of containers that we can fill. 

 

                     

We drop the remainder of  because the question asks how many containers we can fill completely.

Example Question #23 : Solve Multistep Word Problems Using The Four Operations: Ccss.Math.Content.4.Oa.A.3

 students are going on a field trip.  students can ride in each car. How many cars will they need for the field trip?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

When we have a set of something that we are splitting up into groups, we divide. In this case, we are dividing students up into cars. We will let  represent the number of cars they will need.

           

Our answer is  with a remainder of . This means that they will have  full cars of  people, but there is  person left over. So they need  cars in order for every student to be in a car.
