Divide by 2 Digit Numbers - 5th Grade Math
In the fifth grade, students are required to divide numbers within 10000(4-digit numbers) by numbers within 100 (2-digit numbers). In Divide by 2 Digit Numbers Worksheet, they practice scenarios where the division does not leave any remainder. While dividing, students will have to think about the nearest multiple of the divisor. This task is fairly simple with 1-digit divisors, as students know the multiplication facts by memory. With 2-digit divisors, estimation strategies will come in handy, while guessing the nearest multiple. Therefore, this worksheet begins with problems on estimating quotients. As an example, while dividing 7290÷ 81, students can estimate the quotient to be close to 7200 ÷ 80, which is 90. This can be their starting point for the division.
