Worksheet: Estimating Quotients: Two-Digit Divisors

In this worksheet, we will practice replacing factors with compatible numbers to estimate the quotient when the divisor is a two-digit number.

Q1:

We can use multiples of 5 to estimate the answer to 82÷5.

Number1314151617
Number ×56570

Think about the missing numbers in the table to answer the questions.

82 is closest to ×5.

So, 82÷5 is about .

Q2:

Liam is using facts he knows to estimate 347÷6.

What is 360÷6?

Pick the number which is closest to 347÷6.

  • A45
  • B72
  • C6
  • D50
  • E60

Q3:

We can use facts we know to estimate quotients.

Pick the division fact that would give you the best estimate of 4,812÷7.

  • A6,300÷7
  • B3,500÷7
  • C4,200÷7
  • D4,900÷7
  • E5,600÷7

Solve the division from the first part to finish the sentence: 4,812÷7 is about .

Q4:

Mason has made a table of multiples of 6. Help him use the table to estimate 70÷6.

Number7891011121314
Multiple of 64248546066727884

Find the missing multiples of 6 to finish the sentence:

70 is between and .

  • A72, 78
  • B60, 66
  • C66, 72
  • D54, 60
  • E78, 84

So, 70÷6 is about .

Hint: Which multiple of 6 is it closest to?

Q5:

Scarlett has made a table of multiples of 8. Use the table to help her estimate 371÷8.

Number4546474849
Number × 8360368376384392

Use numbers from the table to finish each of these sentences.

371 is between the following two consecutive multiples of 8: and .

  • A376, 384
  • B360, 368
  • C384, 392
  • D368, 376

371÷8 is between the following two consecutive numbers: and .

  • A45, 46
  • B47, 48
  • C46, 47
  • D48, 49

So, 371÷8 is about .

Hint: Which of the two numbers corresponds to the number that is closer to 371?
