Divide 4 Digit by 2 Digit Numbers with Remainder

- 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 with Remainder Worksheet, they practice scenarios where the division leaves a non-zero 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 7431÷ 81, students can estimate the quotient to be close to 7200 ÷ 80, which is 90. This can be their starting point for the division.
