hi Sarah

If you want to learn how to do division, I suggest you start with what you can do, eg.  take aways.

So instead of 100 over 20 how about

"How many 20s can you take from 100 ?"

See picture.

Hi;

That is not right. 20 can not go into 1. 20 is bigger than 1. Do you understand  what I am saying?

Hi Sarah;

because 5 x 20 = 100. How do you do long division?

hi Sarah,

How are you today?

Do you mean

Just work out how many 20s make 100.
