Many parents like to help their children at home but are unsure of the modern methods!

 

We hope this helps but please ask at any time if you require further help.

 

CHUNKING

Example 1

 

458 stickers are shared between 3 children. How many does each get?

 

    458      
-300     that's 100 x 3    
158 left
-150 that's 50 x 3
8 left
- 6 that's 2 x 3
2 left over

 

 

So each gets 100+50+2 or 152 stickers with 2 left over.

458 divided by 3 = 152 remainder 2

 

Example 2

 

432 children and adults are going on a school trip. If each bus takes 30 people how many are needed?

 

    432         people going
-300 that's 10 x 30 or 10 buses
132 left
-120 that's 4 x 30 or 4 buses
12 left 1 bus

 

 

So we see that the calculation would result in
432 divided by 30 = 14 remainder 12

This is not a good answer for this question because the 12 people left over would need another bus or they couldn't go!

So we see that 15 buses are needed or some cars.
