Estimate Quotients

  1. 1. Estimate Quotients Mrs. Young EMC 1 Division
  2. 2. Objective To estimate quotients <ul><li>Estimate the quotient for 4,210 ÷ 6 </li></ul><ul><li>-What is a quotient?? </li></ul><ul><li>That’s right! The answer to a division problem! </li></ul>
  3. 3. Step 1 to estimate quotients: <ul><li>Estimate the quotient for 4,210 ÷ 6 </li></ul><ul><li>-First we need to find numbers that are compatible </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This means that we need to see if there are any basic division facts that we can solve easily. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>And there is! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>42 ÷ 6 = 7 </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Step 2 to estimate quotients: <ul><li>Estimate the quotient for 4,210 ÷ 6 </li></ul><ul><li>42 ÷ 6 = 7 </li></ul>6 )4 2 1 0 7 0 0 Now all that we do is place the 7 above the 2, and everything else becomes a zero in the answer.
  5. 5. Step 1 to estimate quotients: <ul><li>Estimate the quotient for 635 ÷ 8 </li></ul><ul><li>-First we need to find numbers that are compatible </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This means that we need to see if there are any basic division facts that we can solve easily. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>And there is! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>64 ÷ 8 = 8 </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Step 2 to estimate quotients: <ul><li>Estimate the quotient for 635 ÷ 8 </li></ul><ul><li>64 ÷ 8 = 8 </li></ul>8 ) 6 3 5 Now all that we do is place the 8 above the 3, and everything else becomes a zero in the answer. 8 0
  7. 7. Step 1 to estimate quotients: <ul><li>Estimate the quotient for 369 ÷ 7 </li></ul><ul><li>-First we need to find numbers that are compatible </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This means that we need to see if there are any basic division facts that we can solve easily. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>And there is! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>35 ÷ 7 = 5 </li></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Step 2 to estimate quotients: <ul><li>Estimate the quotient for 369 ÷ 7 </li></ul><ul><li>35 ÷ 7 = 5 </li></ul>7 ) 3 6 9 Now all that we do is place the 5 above the 6, and everything else becomes a zero in the answer. 5 0
