Re: math question

Hi Sarah;

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


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

Re: math question

Hi Sarah;

Look at the drawing. How many times does 20 go into 1?

Re: math question

Hi;

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

Re: math question

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.
