Question 8.

54 ÷ 9 = ___

____ × 9 = 54

Answer:

54 ÷ 9 = 6

6 × 9 = 54

Explanation:

Take the first digit of the dividend from the left,

if the digit is less than the divisor then move to the next number.

Then divide it by the divisor and write the answer on top as the quotient.

Subtract the result from the digit and write the remainder.

Division is the opposite of multiplication in mathematics.

Question 9.

___ ÷ 9 = 8

8 × 9 = ____

Answer:

72 ÷ 9 = 8

8 × 9 = 72

Explanation:

To find the dividend, multiply the quotient with divisor.

As, Division is the opposite of multiplication in mathematics.

**Algebra Divide to find the unknown number in each equation.**

Question 10.

95 ÷ 5 = n

n = ____

Answer:

n = 19

Explanation:

To find the unknown number from the given equation,

divided the dividend with divisor.

95 ÷ 5 = n

Question 8.

Each of the 9 parking lots at an automobile plant holds the same number of new cars. The lots are full. If there are 431 cars in the lots, about how many cars are in each lot? Show how you estimated.

Answer:

Estimate = 50 cars.

The remainder could represent on mug that he has in his hands.

Explanation:

Rachel has 145 mugs displayed at a craft show.

She displays them in 8 rows with the same number of mugs in each row.

Number of mugs in each row 145 ÷ 8 = 18.1

Multiply. 18 × 8 = 144

Subtract. 145 – 144 = 1

Compare. 1 < 8

The remainder is 1.

Interpret the remainder, 1.

There are 18 mugs in each row with a remainder of one.

The remainder could represent on mug that he has in his hands.
