Lesson 18
Using Long Division
Let’s divide whole numbers.
Problem 1
Andre and Jada both found \(657 \div 3\) using the partial quotients method, but they did the calculations differently, as shown here.
 How is Jada's work the same as Andre’s work? How is it different?
 Explain why they have the same answer.
Problem 2
Here is a longdivision calculation of \(917 \div 7\).
 There is a 7 under the 9 of 917. What does this 7 represent?
 What does the subtraction of 7 from 9 mean?
 Why is a 1 written next to the 2 from \(97\)?
Problem 3
Han's calculation of \(972 \div 9\) is shown here.
 Find \(180 \boldcdot 9\).
 Use your calculation of \(180 \boldcdot 9\) to explain how you know Han has made a mistake.
 Identify and correct Han’s mistake.
Problem 4
Find each quotient.
Problem 5
The mass of one coin is 16.718 grams. The mass of a second coin is 27.22 grams. How much greater is the mass of the second coin than the first? Show your reasoning.
Problem 6
One micrometer is a millionth of a meter. A certain spider web is 4 micrometers thick. A fiber in a shirt is 1 hundredthousandth of a meter thick.

Which is wider, the spider web or the fiber? Explain your reasoning.
 How many meters wider?
