### Example Question #32 : How To Divide

Nikki has 164 coins in her coin collection. She decides to break her coin collection into 4 equal groups. How many coins are in each group?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Since Nikki is breaking her total number of coins into smaller, equal groups, we need to divide.

### Example Question #33 : How To Divide

Trinity decides to break up her coin collection into equal groups. Her coin collection consists of coins. How many coins will Trinity put in each group?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Because Trinity is breaking her total number of coins into smaller, equal groups, we need to divide!

### Example Question #34 : How To Divide

Jayme has toy ponies. If she breaks them up into equal groups, how many toy ponies will be in each group?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Because Jayme is breaking her total number of toy ponies into smaller, equal groups, we need to divide!

toy ponies groups = toy ponies per group

### Example Question #35 : How To Divide

Find the quotient, and show a remainder if necessary. (Remainders are denoted with "R" in the answer choices.)

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

When you divide 4 into 15, it does not go in evenly.

4 goes into 15 three full times. The remainder is the difference between 15 and 12.

Therefore the remainder is 3, so the correct answer is 3 R3.

### Example Question #36 : How To Divide

Find the quotient** **and show a remainder if necessary. (Remainders are denoted with R in the answer choices.)

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

7 does not divide evenly into 18, so there will be a remainder. 7 goes into 18 two times.

To find the remainder, we subtract 14 from 18.

The answer is therefore 2 R4.

You can also draw a picture to help visualize the problem:

ooooooo ooooooo **oooo**

This shows 2 groups of 7 (for a total of 14), with 4 left over (the remainder).

### Example Question #37 : How To Divide

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Divide 16 by 4. The quotient is 4.

To visualize, divide 16 objects into equal groups of 4, then count how many groups there are:

oooo oooo oooo oooo = 4 groups in all.

### Example Question #38 : How To Divide

What is the result of dividing six by two?

**Possible Answers:**

-3

6

3

2

12

**Correct answer:**

3

We want to know how many 2's are in 6.

Therefore the answer is 3.

### Example Question #39 : How To Divide

Bryce has baseball cards. He wants to break them up into equal groups. After breaking his cards up, how many baseball cards will be in each group?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Because Bryce is breaking his total number of baseball cards into smaller, equal groups, we need to divide!

### Example Question #40 : How To Divide

Which of the following equations does NOT have a remainder?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

A division equation will not have a remainder if a number can be divided evenly by another number.

The only given equation in which there is no remainder is because 3 goes into 24 exactly 8 times.
