# Lesson Worksheet: Interpreting Remainders Mathematics • 4th Grade

In this worksheet, we will practice interpreting remainders in division problems when we divide a two-digit number by a one-digit number.

**Q3: **

How many 20-centimeter-long tiles do I need to buy to make a row of tiles that is 170 cm long?

- A8
- B20
- C7
- D10
- E9

**Q5: **

Each table in the cafeteria has space for 8 students. Ethan wants to know how many tables are needed for 77 students. He knows that when you divide 77 by 8 you get 9 and a remainder of 5.

How many tables are needed?

Did you round the remainder up or down to find the answer?

- Aup
- Bdown

Why?

- ABecause you need a table for the 5 students that are left over.
- BBecause the remainder is an even number.
- CBecause if the remainder is equal to or greater than 5, we have to round up.
- DBecause you do not need any additional tables.
- EBecause the remainder is an odd number.

**Q6: **

A ribbon is 73 cm long. It is going to be cut into 12-centimeter-long pieces.

First, calculate .

- A7
- B6 R 1
- C6
- D1 R 6
- E12 R 1

State how many 12 cm pieces can be cut from the ribbon.

How long is the piece of ribbon that is left at the end?

**Q7: **

31 pens will be equally distributed among 4 children. Find the maximum number of pens each child can receive and the number of remaining pens.

- A8 pens each, 4 remain
- B7 pens each, 4 remain
- C8 pens each, 3 remain
- D7 pens each, 3 remain

**Q8: **

Noah wants to take his friends to the theater. He has $80 and each ticket costs $9. We are going to work out how many tickets he can buy.

Which calculation will help us answer this question?

- A
- B
- C
- D
- E

To find the number of tickets he can buy, should we ignore the remainder or round it up?

- AIgnore it
- BRound it up

Why?

- ABecause the remainder is greater than $5 and enough to buy an extra ticket
- BBecause the remainder is less than $9 and not enough to buy an extra ticket
- CBecause the remainder is less than $80 and not enough to buy an extra ticket
- DTo buy one more ticket
- EBecause the remainder is an even number

**Q9: **

Hannah is making cubes by gluing together 6 squares. She has 46 squares and wants to know how many cubes she can make. She knows that when you divide 46 by 6 you get 7 and a remainder of 4.

How many cubes can she make?

Did you round the remainder up or down to find the answer?

- Aup
- Bdown

Why?

- ABecause if the remainder is less than 5 we have to round down.
- BBecause the remainder is an odd number.
- CBecause the 4 squares that remain will not make a complete cube.
- DBecause the remainder is an even number.
- EBecause the 4 squares that remain will make a complete cube.

**Q10: **

A farmer packs eggs in boxes of 6. Today, his hens have laid 35 eggs. How many boxes can he fill completely?
