# Miss Burton’s Division Problems!

Hello 2D,

I am having trouble trying to work out some of these division problems, can you help?

30 divided by 10

50 divided by 10

35 divided by 5

24 divided by 2

50 divided by 5

36 divided by 2

If there are 30 children in 2D and I have 60 sweets, how many sweets will each child get?

I have 32 chocolate muffins and I need to share them between 10 children. How many chocolate muffins does each child get? Do I have any chocolate muffins left over?

Thanks for your reply Ms. Burton. I think my answer is right. Each child will get 3 chocolate muffin and you will have 2 left with you. Please correct me if iam wrong.

30 divided by 10 = 3
50 divided by 10 = 5
35 divided by 5 = 7
24 divided by 2 = 12
50 divided by 5 = 10
36 divided by 2 = 18

each child in 2d would get 2 sweets.
each child would get 3 chocolate muffin and you will have 2 left over.

Well done Ashwika, would each child only get two chocolate muffins? Have another think about that question.

Mrs Burton 50 divided by 10 =5
Because 5+10=50. So 50+10=5 because It is similar

50 divided by 10 is 5. Well done! However, 5+10 does not make 50. Have another think about it! What is 7×10 Zeinab?

Well done Lacey! Try 35 divided by 10 again and see what answer you get.
