**Unlock the Problem**

Magda has some leftover wallpaper 73 inches long. She wants to cut it into 8 pieces to use arotLnd the photos in her scrapbook. Each piece will have equal length. How long will each piece be?

When you solve a division problem with a remainder, the way you interpret the remainder depends on the situation and the question.

Answer:

73 ÷ 8

Quotient 9, remainder 1

Explanation:

Magda has some leftover wallpaper 73 inches long.

She wants to cut it into 8 pieces to use arotLnd the photos in her scrapbook.

Each piece will have equal length.

The length of each piece is 9 inches.

**One Way** Write the remainder as a fraction.

The divisor is _______ pieces.

The __________ is 73 inches.

Divide to find the quotient and remainder.

The remainder represents 1 inch left over, which can also be divided into 8 equal parts and written as a fraction.

\(\frac{\text { remainder }}{\text { divisor }}\) = __________

Write the quotient with the remainder written as a fraction. __________

So, each piece will be __________ inches long.

Answer:

The divisor is 8 pieces.

The dividend is 73 inches.

\(\frac{\text { remainder }}{\text { divisor }}\) = \(\frac{\text { 1 }}{\text { 8 }}\)

Write the quotient with the remainder written as a fraction. 0.125

So, each piece will be 9.125 inches long.

Explanation:

9 + 0.125 = 9.125

9.125 x 8 = 73

**Other Ways**

(A) Use only the quotient.

Ben is a tour guide at a glass-blowing studio. He can take no ‘more than 7 people at a time on a tour. If 80 people want to see the glass-blowing demonstration, how many groups of 1 people will Ben show around?

First, divide to find the quotient and remainder.

Then, decide how to use the quotient and remainder.

The quotient is _____________ .

The remainder is _____________.

Answer:

Quotient 11

Remainder 3

Explanation:

Ben can give tours to 7 people at a time.

The quotient is the number of tour groups of exactly 7 people he can show around.

80 ÷ 7

11 x 7 = 77

Quotient is 11 and remainder is 3

77 + 3 = 80

The quotient is 11.

The remainder is 3.

So, Ben gives tours to _________ groups of 7 people.

Answer:

So, Ben gives tours to 11 groups of 7 people.

(B) Add 1 to the quotient.

If Ben gives tours to all 80 people, how many tours will he give? A tour can have no more than 7 people. To show all 80 people around, Ben will have to give 1 more tour.

So, ben will give _________ tours in all for 80 people.

Answer:

So, ben will give 12 tours in all for 80 people

Explanation:

If Ben gives tours to all 80 people,

A tour can have no more than 7 people.

To show all 80 people around, Ben will have to give 1 more tour.

80 ÷ 7 = 11

3 people left.

Estimate of 12 tours can be done.

(C) Use only the remainder.

Ben gives tours to all 80 people. After he completes the tours for groups of 7 people, how many people are in his last tour? The remainder is 3.

So, Ben’s last tour will have ___________ people.

Answer:

3 people only

Explanation:

Ben gives tours to all 80 people.

After he completes the tours for groups of 7 people, how many people are in his last tour

The remainder is 3.

80 ÷ 7 = 11

3 people left.

**Math Talk**

Mathematical Processes

Explain why you would not write the remainder as a fraction when you find the number of vans needed.

Answer:

Each van holds 9 people and 3 vans are needed for 27 players and 1 van for 4 coaches. vans of people can not be divided in to fractions for transport.

Explanation:

A remainder is the number left over after a division.

It has not been divided.

To write a remainder as a fraction, divide it by the number being divided by.
