Application Problem

The area of a vegetable garden is 200 ft2. The width is 10 ft. What’s the length of the vegetable garden?

Note: This problem provides a nice opportunity to quickly address area concepts and division by a power of ten, allowing for a smooth transition into the day’s Concept Development. While solving, students should be encouraged to draw a picture of a rectangle to support their work.

1. Divide. Draw number disks to show your thinking for (a) and (c). You may draw disks on your personal white board to solve the others if necessary.
a. 500 ÷ 10
c. 12,000 ÷ 100
2. Divide.
b. 12,000 ÷ 300
e. 560,000 ÷ 700
3. The floor of a rectangular banquet hall has an area of 3,600 m2. The length is 90 m.

Lesson 16 Homework

This video demonstrates how to divide with ten-patterns using place value charts, number disks, and decomposition.
1. Divide. Draw number disks to show your thinking for (a) and (c). You may draw disks on your personal white board to solve the others if necessary.

a. 300 ÷ 10
b. 450 ÷ 10
d. 730,000 ÷ 100
f. 680,000 ÷ 1,000
2. Divide. The first one is done for you.
a. 18,000 ÷ 20
= 18,000 ÷ 10 ÷ 2
= 1,800 ÷ 2
= 900
b. 18,000 ÷ 200
c. 18,000 ÷ 2,000 Lesson 16 Homework
