For each division, write an equation that describes the number as a multiple plus a remainder.

For example: Divide 37 by 8. 4×8 = 32 is the nearest multiple of 8 less than 37, and the remainder is 5. Therefore the answer is:

37 = 4×8 + 5.

1. Divide 12 by 5.

When you divide a number, the number of whole multiples is the quotient, and the number left over is the remainder. When nine is divided by two, there are four twos and one left over: the quotient is 4 and the remainder is 1.

For each problem, list the quotient and the remainder.

1. Divide 6 by 4.

2. Divide 11 by 2.

3. Divide 10 by 5.

4. Divide 11 by 10.

5. Divide 23 by 3.
