1. Step 1:
Start by setting it up with the divisor 5 on the left side and the dividend 33 on the right side like this:

5 ⟌ 3 3

Step 2:
The divisor (5) goes into the first digit of the dividend (3), 0 time(s). Therefore, put 0 on top:

0
5 ⟌ 3 3

Step 3:
Multiply the divisor by the result in the previous step (5 x 0 = 0) and write that answer below the dividend.

0
5 ⟌ 3 3
0

Step 4:
Subtract the result in the previous step from the first digit of the dividend (3 – 0 = 3) and write the answer below.

0
5 ⟌ 3 3
– 0
3

Step 5:
Move down the 2nd digit of the dividend (3) like this:

0
5 ⟌ 3 3
– 0
3 3

Step 6:
The divisor (5) goes into the bottom number (33), 6 time(s). Therefore, put 6 on top:

0 6
5 ⟌ 3 3
– 0
3 3

Step 7:
Multiply the divisor by the result in the previous step (5 x 6 = 30) and write that answer at the bottom:

0 6
5 ⟌ 3 3
– 0
3 3
3 0

Step 8:
Subtract the result in the previous step from the number written above it. (33 – 30 = 3) and write the answer at the bottom.

0 6
5 ⟌ 3 3
– 0
3 3
– 3 0
3
Which equals 6

(1/6 yd)/student

Step-by-step explanation:

Figure out the measure (in yards) that corresponds to each of 33 students:

5.5 yds            5.5                             55*10^(-1)

——————- = ——- yds/student = —————– yds/student, or

33 students     33                                33

5

——– yd/student, or, finally, 1/6 yd/student

30

Check:  How much fabric is used to make a bandana for each of 33 students if 1/6 yd is required for each?  (33 students)([1/6] yd/student = 5.5 yd (correct)
