How do you divide by repeated subtraction?

We are going to learn how to find the quotient and the remainder by the repeated subtraction method to solve a division problem.

Solved examples for division by repeated subtraction:

1. Solve 16 ÷ 8

Solution:

8 is repeatedly subtracted from 16 as shown: If you subtract 8 times from 16, we get the remainder zero.

Therefore 16 ÷ 8 = 2.2 is the quotient.

2. Parts 20 ÷ 5 ÷

5 is repeatedly subtracted from 20 as shown: If 5 is subtracted from 20 four times, we get the remainder zero.

Therefore 20 ÷ 5 = 4, 4 is the quotient.

3rd Solve 12 times 3

Solution:

3 is repeatedly subtracted from 12 as shown: If 3 is subtracted from 12 four times, we get the remainder zero.

Therefore 12 ÷ 3 = 4, 4 is the quotient.

4th Parts 28 ÷ 7

7 is repeatedly subtracted from 28 as shown: If 7 is subtracted from 28 four times, we get the remainder zero.

Therefore 28 ÷ 7 = 4, 4 is the quotient.

5. Parts 32 ÷ 4

4 is repeatedly subtracted from 32 as shown: If 4 is subtracted from 32 eight times, we get the remainder zero.

So 32 ÷ 4 = 8.8 is the quotient.

6th Solve 18 through 6.

6 is repeatedly subtracted from 18 as shown: If 6 is subtracted from 18 three times, we get the remainder zero.

So 18 ÷ 6 = 3.3 is the quotient.

7th Divide 18 ice creams among 6 children by repeated subtraction. The above examples will help us solve various problems of dividing a two digit number by a one digit number using the repeated subtraction method.
