What strategy I used to divide was just Fastt Math. They exposed me to the equations and also the answers and I memorized them and I never used a strategy.

a strategy that i use for dividing whole numbers would be repeated subtraction. to use repeated subtraction by getting a piece of paper and you start with the biggest number you have. FOR EXAMPLE : 59/5. so we start with 59. 59 5=545=495=445=395=345=295=245=195=145=95=4 and we can't go any farther and we have 4 left over. then we count how many times we used the number five. so the answer is 11 r 4.

When i divide whole numbers I use a certain strategy. The strategy i use is called skip counting. For example if you were dividing 20\6 I would skip count by sixes until i got to or close to 20. when i finally did that i would write down my quotient and remainder if there was one.

I use skip counting to divide whole numbers. this helps because if I where to try to find out what 18/3= I would have to say in my head

The stadegy that I used to solve a division oroblem is repeating subtrations becase its easyer for me you just have to write your problem then subrtact your divesor then keep on subrtating that untill you pass your divisor.

A strategy that helped me was Fast Math because you have to login to do your lesson for the day.There is Addition,Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division those are the ones that can help you to know your facts really fast. If your done with all that you can go on Sumdog their is one person in our class is done with everything and he is on Sumdog his name is Matthew.I am on subtraction right now because they moved me up to Subtraction.As you can see, Fast Math is so hard.
