# Lesson 1

Size of Divisor and Size of Quotient

### Problem 1

Order from smallest to largest:

• Number of pennies in a stack that is 1 ft high
• Number of books in a stack that is 1 ft high
• Number of dollar bills in a stack that is 1 ft high
• Number of slices of bread in a stack that is 1 ft high

### Problem 2

Use each of the numbers 4, 40, and 4000 once to complete the sentences.

1. The value of $$\underline{\hspace{1in}} \div 40.01$$ is close to 1.

2. The value of $$\underline{\hspace{1in}} \div 40.01$$ is much less than 1.

3. The value of $$\underline{\hspace{1in}}\div 40.01$$ is much greater than 1.

### Problem 3

Without computing, decide whether the value of each expression is much smaller than 1, close to 1, or much greater than 1.

1. $$100 \div \frac{1}{1000}$$
2. $$50\frac13 \div 50\frac14$$
3. $$4.7 \div 5.2$$
4. $$2 \div 7335$$
5. $$2,\!000,\!001 \div 9$$
6. $$0.002 \div 2,\!000$$
