## McGraw-Hill My Math Grade 4 Answer Key Chapter 6 Lesson 9 Divide Greater Numbers

**Math in My World**

Example 1

There are 678 people in line to ride a roller coaster. Each coaster car holds 6 people. How many coaster cars are needed so that everyone in line rides the coaster once?

Divide 678 by 6.

1. Divide the hundreds.

Divide. 6 ÷ 6 = 1

Write 1 in the hundreds place.

Multiply. 6 × 1 = 6

Subtract. 6 – 6 = 0

Compare. 0 < 6

Bring down the tens.

2. Divide the tens.

Divide. There is 1 group of 6 in 7.

Write 1 in the tens place. Multiply. 6 × 1 = 6 Subtract. 7 – 6 = 1 Compare. 1 < 6 Bring down the ones.

678 ÷ 6 = 113.

So, 113 coaster cars are needed.

3. Divide the ones.

Divide. 18 ÷ 6 = 3 Write 3 in the ones place. Multiply. 6 × 3 = 18 Subtract. 18 – 18 = 0 Compare. 0 < 6

Example 2

A roller coaster takes about 4 minutes to travel its 1,970-foot track. How many feet does the coaster travel in one minute?

Divide 1,970 by 4.

Estimate 1,970 4 ÷ 4 → 2,000 ÷ 4 = _____

1. Divide the thousands.

Since is 1 < 4, you cannot divide the thousands.

Answer:

2. Divide the hundreds.

Divide. There are 4 groups of 4 in 19. Multiply. Subtract. Compare. Bring down.

3. Divide the tens.

Divide. There are 9 groups of 4 in 37. Multiply. Subtract. Compare. Bring down.

4. Divide the ones.

Divide. There are 2 groups of 4 in 10. Multiply. Subtract. Compare. Bring down.

So, it travels a little more than ___ feet each minute.

Answer:

It travels a little more than 492 feet each minute.

5. Find the remainder.

Check The answer, a little more than ___, is close to the estimate of 500. So, the answer is reasonable.

Answer:

The answer, a little more than 493, is close to the estimate of 500. So, the answer is reasonable.

The remainder is 2.

**Use the following information for Exercises 12-13.**

The White House is the official home and workplace of the President of the United States. President Theodore Roosevelt gave the White House its name, based on its color.

Question 12.

**Mathematical PRACTICE 2 Reason** It takes 570 gallons of paint to paint the outside of the White House. If the number of gallons used to paint each of its 4 sides is equal, how many gallons of paint are used on each side?

Answer:

There are 143 gallons of paint are used on each side.

Explanation:

Given,

No of gallons of paint = 570 gallons

f the number of gallons used to paint each of its 4 sides is equal

570 ÷ 4 = 142.5 approximately 143 gallons of paint.

Question 13.

There are 132 rooms and 6 floors in the White House. If each floor has the same number of rooms, how many rooms would each floor have?

Answer:

792 rooms.

Explanation:

Given,

No of floors = 6

No of rooms = 132

To find: how many rooms would each floor have?

132 × 6 = 792 rooms.

Hence there are 792 rooms on each floor.

Question 14.

Question 15.

**Mathematical PRACTICE 1 Make a Plan** Write a division problem that results in a quotient that is greater than 200 and less than 250.

Answer:

A division problem that gives in a quotient that is greater than 200 and less than 250 is 300 which is divided by 1.25 is equal to 240.

Question 16.

**? Building on the Essential Question** Do the quotients always have the same number of digits when dividing 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers?

Answer:

No, quotients don’t have the same number of digits when dividing 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers.

Explanation:

Let us take the 3-digit number as 100

1 digit number = 2

The division is 100 ÷ 2 = 50 which has 2 digits.

the 3 digit number is 300

1 digit number is 2

The division is 300 ÷ 2 = 150 which has 3 digits.
