Hi, I'm Rachel, and today we're going to be going over how to divide numbers without remainders. Division is the opposite of multiplication. So if you have memorized your multiplication times tables then it should be pretty easy. Right? Because they're kind of like two sides of the same coin. So for a lot of the numbers without remainders, pretty much anything through 100. If you're dividing by it, it's just the opposite of multiplying. So if you've already memorized that three times nine is 27, you know that when you have 27 divided by nine it's going to be that other piece, the three. Or 27 divided by three, it's going to be the nine. If it's some number over 100 that you haven't memorized, then we can set it up. Let's look at three in to 156. Now when you're doing this you want to do three and you want to look and see if it goes in to the first number. So does three go in to one? No. Does three go in to 15? Let's look at the first two numbers. Yes. How many times? Well we've memorized our multiplications times tables it goes in five times. So then we do three times five, what we just did, we know it's 15, we line it up under the 15, we subtract 15 minus 15 and we get zero. Then we have to bring down any remaining numbers. There's still a six left. So we bring down the six, we do three in to six, that goes in two times, We write the two right above the six. Make sure you have perfect alignment and placement of the numbers. Again you multiply three times two, six and again subtract and you end up with zero. So there's no remainder. So the answer is 52. I'm Rachel and thanks for learning with me today.
