We want to divide by 15 using the standard division algorithm.
In which interval do you expect the result to be?
We use for the first stage of the division, in which we divide by 15. We look for the number , between 1 and 9, which represents the number of 15s in 24. What is the value of ?
At this stage, we have found that sharing 24 thousands in 15 groups gives 1 (number ) thousand per group, or that we can form 1 group of 15 thousands with 24 thousands. We need to work out the remainder (number ), taking into account that we want to divide by 15. For this, we write what has already been shared (number ). What are the values of and ?
The diagram shows the second stage of the division algorithm. The number is between 1 and 9 and represents the number of 15s in 92. What are the values of , and ?
The diagram shows the third stage of the division algorithm. What does the number represent?
What are the values of , and ?
