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)

## Answers ( )

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

Answer:(1/6 yd)/student
