## What Are Remainders in Division?

Divisions are fun things to do. When we want to divide or separate a big number into some equal number of groups, we take the help of division.

Before starting, we want to remind you of the basics of division. To do a division, you need to have two numbers. Dividend or the number you want to divide and the divisor, the number to divide with. A perfect or proper division does not have any remainder.

That means, when a dividend is fully or completely divided by the divisor without any remainder then that is a proper division. Look at the following image for better understanding. So, when does the term remainder come in work? Can you guess? Right! When the dividend is not divided completely by the divisor then a remainder appears.

The remainder is always smaller than the divisor. So, the divisor cannot divide it completely. The following image will give you more details about this topic.

## Spin the Wheel to Find 3 Digit by 1 Digit Division with Remainders

Our first activity is regarding the spinning wheel and doing 3 digit by 1 digit division with remainders.

• In the center of the wheel, you will find the divisor. The outer layer consists of some dividends.
• The center part of the wheel is fixed, and the outer part can be rotated. Spin the wheel.
• Divide the dividend that comes under the marker after rotation.
• After division, write the quotients and the remainder if any in the outermost layer.

Now, solve the problems on the following worksheet based on the above discussion.

## Do 3 Digit by 1 Digit Division with Remainders to Get Your Way Out

Another interesting activity of divisions with remainder is to find your way from the maze. To get out of the maze remember the following points.

• See the following riddle. Some divisions are given as your key to finding the way home.
• Remember that only the divisions that have remainder with the quotients are your way home.
• Find such divisions color the respective fields and draw your way out.

Now, solve the problems on the following worksheet based on the above discussion.

## 3 Digit by 1 Digit Division with Remainders Word Problem

Unlike the above activities, here we are going to solve some simple word problems. The division is not directly given here. Rather, you have to form the equation by simply understanding the word problem.

Now, solve the problems on the following worksheet based on the above discussion.

## Doing Long Division with Remainders

As for our last activity, we will practice some long divisions. These long divisions will always result in a quotient with remainders. So, buckle up and grab your notebook and pencil. Solve each of the long divisions like a pro.
