• Why have they put a 20? :/
I don't understand anything :c
• me too
• Can you do more videos on division strategies they are really helpful
• I watched this then went and did a problem and they did it way differently than you taught us.
• yeah that's true
• when I do it on paper (473 divided by 5), it gives me 94.3 also, but when I do it in the calculator, it gives me 94.6. Why it gives me 6 remainders in the calculator?
• The number after the decimal point (.) isn't the same thing as the remainder. When you're dividing on paper you can write a quotient with a remainder as 94 R 3 or something similar. Writing it as 94.3 would actually mean that 5 goes into 473 94 and three tenths times, which isn't true. Your calculator is showing the right answer: 5 goes into 473 94 and six tenths (or 94.6) times. The decimal point is for decimals, not remainders.

If you want, here's a video which explains how you would get a decimal answer to this sort of problem (like your calculator's doing): https://www.khanacademy.org/math/cc-fifth-grade-math/divide-decimals/divide-whole-numbers-to-get-a-decimal-quotient/v/divide-whole-numbers-with-decimal-quotients

I hope this helps!
• I do not understand about the new help by dividing what can i do for learn that ease ?
• 🤔 hmm I dont get it
• i see your strategy here but im cunfused wont it be wrong if u just like guess? or is it always right?
