NYS Math Module 2 Grade 6 Lesson 12 Exercises
Show an example of how you would solve 5,911 ÷ 23. You can use any method or model to show your work. Just be
sure that you can explain how you got to your solution.
We can also use estimates before we divide to help us solve division problems. In this lesson we will be using estimation
to help us divide two numbers using the division algorithm.
Estimate the quotient of 8,085 ÷ 33. Then divide.
Create a model to show the division of 8,085 and 33.
Use estimation and the standard algorithm to divide. 1,512 ÷ 27
