Worksheet: Dividing Numbers Using Repeated Subtraction

In this worksheet, we will practice dividing numbers up to 100 using repeated subtraction to find the number of groups.

Q1:

A person wants to distribute 30 notebooks equally into 6 bags. How many notebooks should they put in each bag?

Q2:

A person has 21 apples to put in plates. Each plate will hold 3 apples.

  • A 2 1 ÷ 7 = 3
  • B 2 1 ÷ 3 = 1 8
  • C 2 1 ÷ 3 = 2 4
  • D 2 1 ÷ 3 = 7

Q3:

Start at 36 and jump back in 6 s until you reach 0 to find the answer to 36÷6.

Q4:

Use Erin’s strategy to find the answers.

2 0 ÷ 4 = ?

2 1 ÷ 7 = ?

Q5:

We can use number lines to divide.

Jump back 5 each time. How many jumps from 35 to 0 do you make?

Write a subtraction equation to show this.

  • A 3 5 5 5 5 5 5 = 0
  • B 3 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 = 0
  • C 3 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 = 0
