G&T
A. False, the correct answer is 372 with the remainder of 6.
B. True, the answer is 86.
C. True, the number is 635.

2. Gautam Shrivastava

A. 213

3. Samuel Masterson

A. 1917 divided by 9 = 213 because I worked it out with the short division method and I came to my conclusion: 213, because 9 doesn’t go into 1 so I had to carry the 1 over to the hundreds column. 19 divided by 9 = 2 but I had 1 remainder so I had to take that into the tens column. After that I worked out that one 9 goes into 11 and it 2 remainders, so I took the 2 into the ones column. Then I figured that three 9s went into 27. So I found my answer: 213.
B. Roy is correct because 6952 can be divided 11, I worked this out by dividing 6 by 11 but you can’t, so you have to take the 6 into the hundreds column. 69 divided by 11 = 6, but there is a remainder of 3. So now I have to put the the 3 into the tens column, 35 divided by 11 = 3r2. So now

4. Linda Belerta

1.This is incorrect because it has a remainder but it shud be 29. First divided 9 by 2 but you can’t do it so carry ouwer to the next colom divided 9 by 26 but it must be in 9 time tabl. The closes one is 18 so it 2 count on until you get 29 . Carry 8 owner because that’s what I got now 9 divided by 81 and it is 9 tha answer is 28

This is wrong because it not 25 but it shud be 24.1 This what you need to do. First divided 1 by7

5. Mia Mattu

A.) Three thouand, nine hundred and thirty four, minus one thousand, three hundred and twenty four equals two thousand six hundred and ten and seven goes into two thousand six hundred and ten three hundred and seventy two remainder six times so Joe is incorrect.

B.) This is true because one thousand, two hundred and ninety divided by ten is one hundred and twenty nine which is not divisible by five without a remainder. Instead, the answer is, twenty five remainder four.

6. Mihir Sharma

A)Three thousand nine hundred and thirty-four subtracted by one thousand three hundred and twenty-four is two thousand six hundred and ten. Two thousand six hundred and ten divided by seven is three hundred and seventy-two remainder six. Three sevens go in twenty-six,there is a remainder of five. Seven sevens go in fifty-one,there is a remainder of two. Two sevens go in twenty,remainder six. This is false.

B) One thousand two hundred and ninety divided by fifteen is not exactly divisible because if ten goes in the number,it is obvious that fifteen will not come in that number. This is true.

7. Alishba Khan

1) This is incorrect because 261 divided by 9 = 29 because there’s zero nines in 2 so you cross the two and put it in the next column and then you do 9 divided by something that needs to equal 26 therefore the is no 26 in the nine timetable so you do 9 x 2 which equals 18.So after you count how much is left to get up to 26 and it will be 8 so in the last column you write 8 at last you do 9×9 which equals 81.
So the final answer is 29.

2) This is incorrect because 27cm +168cm =193. Then you do 168 divided by 7 which equals 24 so jack cut 24cm off.

8. Jay Damania

A.The answer is 213.I got this by finding how many nines go into one which is zero. Then carry over one to the nine and then see how many nines go into and that is two.After that,carry over the remaining number which is one and then put one on top.Now carry over two because that is the remaining number.Finally,find how many nines go into twenty seven.That is three so your answer is 213.
B.The answer is 632.I found this by finding out how many 11s go into 6 which is zero. Then carry over 6 to the nine.After that, find out how many 11s go into 69 and that is 6.Carry over the 3 to 5.Then put 3 on top.After carry over two and it becomes 22.Now the answer will become 632.

9. Hanaan Finger

1)261 divided by 9 = 29
It is 29 because that there’s 0 9 in 2 Therefore you carry over the whole two
Which will now be 26 however you need to carry over 8 over which you now need to do 9×9=81.
2)25cm+ 168cm=193
Then you must do 193 divided by 7 =27r3
It is 27r3 because you need to carry the one over to the nine which now will be 19.
Then you now need to do 3×7=21.

10. Shabnam Jalili

1) This statement is false because the answer 9 2 is impossible so you have to carry the 2 to the next column. Then, work out what 81 divide by 9 which is 2 and again you carry the 8 over to the 1 which makes 81. Work out what 81 divide by 9 which is 9. So, the answer is 29.

11. Sanna Khan

For the the first one you need to know how many 9 go into 2 and then you Need to know how many 9 go into 26.

12. Tiya Patel

1.This statement is incorrect because the answer 9 2 is wrong so you have to carry the 2 next column. Next work out what is 81 divided by 9 which is 2. The answer is 29. It is not 27.

2. This statement is false first you do 7 divided by 1 which is 0. Then you carry over the 1 to the next column. When you have do that you need to know how many 7 go in 16 which is 2. Then you need to know how many 7 go in 28 which is 8. So this means that the answer is 28.

13. Osmaan Sharifi

A). The answer is incorrect as the correct answer is three hundred and seventy two remainder six . Seven doesn’t go into two so you have to carry it over to the six . Three sevens go into twenty six but the remainder is five , then carry over the five to the one and it creates fifty one . Seven multiplied by seven equals a total of forty nine however there is a remainder of two , this means you need to carry it over to the last digit which is zero . Two sevens go into twenty , but there is a remainder of six . Due to twenty being the final number , six is a remainder .The altogether total is three hundred and seventy two remainder six .
B). It is false as one thousand two hundred and ninety divided by fifteen equals eighty six which doesn’t have a remainder. Fifteen doesn’t fit into one so you carry it over to the next number which is two . One and two put together make twelve , fifteen is still more than twelve , this means you carry over twelve to nine making a number of one hundred and twenty nine . Eight fifteens go into one hundred and twenty nine however there is a remainder of nine . Nine carried over to zero creates ninety . Exactly six nines go into ninety so the answer does not have a remainder. Altogether the answer is eighty six which doesn’t have a remainder .
C).it is true as one thousand two hundred and ninety divided by fifteen equal a total of six hundred and thirty five . Twelve does not go into seven so you carry it over to six and the number seventy six is created . Six twelve into seventy six however there is a remainder of four , this means you have to carry it over to two creating a number of forty two . Three twelves go into forty two but there is a remainder of of six . When you attach six and zero , sixty is created . Five twelves exactly go into sixty meaning there is no remainder . The answer is true because it is a three digit number .

A) The first question equals 213 because the first step of this is how many 9 go into 1 no 9 go into 1 so you carry over the 1 to the next colum. Next you find out how many 9 go into 19 2 go into go 19 and there is one remainder so you carry the 1 to the next colum. When you have carried the 1 over you find out how many 9 go into 11 1 goes into 9 so so you carry over the 2 into the next colum. The last step in this question is that you find out how many 9 goes into 27 3 goes 9 go therefore your answer is 213.
B) The second question equals 632 because the first of this is how many 11 go into 6 no 11 go 6 so you carry over the 6 to the next colum. Next you find you find out how many 11 go into 69 6 11 go into 69 so you carry over the 3. When you have carried the 3 over you need to find out how many 11 go into 35 3 goes into 35 and you carry over the 2. The last step is that you divide 22 by 11 it equals 2 therefore your answer is 632.

15. Omio Bhattacharjee

A) Joe is correct because 3934 – 1324=2610 because 4-4=0 ,3-2=1,9-3=6 and 3-1=2 which altogether equals 2610.As it says Joe spilt the remaining Lego bricks into seven boxes you have to do 2610 divided by 7 so you can’t do 7 divided by 2 so the 2 goes into the next column hencefore the hundreds is now 26.Because you can do 26 divided by 7 you divide it which equals 3 and the remainder goes to the next column.The remainder is 5 so now the one the is now fifty one and you can do 51 divided by 7 which equals 7 and the remainder goes into the last column which is twenty so twenty divided by seven equals 2 because 7×3 equals equals 21 and we have only got twenty .So altogether it equals 372 remainder 6 and Joe said that there will be a remainder so he is correct.

B)1290 divided by 15 has a remainder is false because you can’t do 1divided by 15 so you have to carry over the one to the next column so now you have to do 12divided by 15 but you can’t that so you have to carry over the 12 to the next column.So now you have to do 129 divided by 15 and you can do that so 129 divided by 15 equals 8 but there is a remainder of 9 so you have to carry over the nine to the next column.Because of the remainder the zero becomes a 90 because of the remainder in the last column .Now you have to do 90 divided by 15 which equals 6 so althoghter 1290 divided by 15 equals 86.

C)7620 divided by 12 is a 3 digit number because 7 divided by 12 you can’t do so you carry over the seven to the next column which now the hundreds is 76.Now 76 divided by 12 equals 6 and there is a remainder of 4 so you carry over the four to the next column .Now 42 divided by 12 equals 3 however there is a remainder of 6 so carry over the six to the next column so 60 divided by twelve is 5.Finally the answer is 635 which is a 3 digit number.

Yes and the answer is 632

17. Fatima Ghaffar

True or false statements
1.)The first one is 213 because what I did was 19 divided by 9 which gave me 199 which I am left with 1remainder then 70 divided by 13 that is 30.

A)The first answer is 213 I know this because first I did 199 divide by 9 which is one remainder and then you do 17 divide by 9 which is also 13 which means the total is 213.

19. Momina Shafique

A) the first answer is 213 because first I did 199 divide by 9 which is 199 which is one remainder and then you do 17 divide by 9 which is also 13 which means the total is 213

A) the first one is 213 because first i did 19 divide by 9 which is 199 which is one remainder and then you do 17 divide by 9 which is also 13 which means the total is 213.

21. Muhammed Luut

1)261dived by 9 =29 False.
2) 25 divided by 7=3 False.

22. Ali Hameed

1. This answer is false because nine divided by two you can’t do that so you put the two next two the six so it eaquls 2⃣9⃣
