Model Problem # 1

Twyllah won $65.80. She wants to share it with 4 of her best friends evenly. How much will each person get if the money is split up evenly? *Remember Twyllah will also be getting an equal share.

Step 1-How many times can 5 go into 6 ? Put the one above the 6.

Step 2-Fill in the remaining place values with zeros.

Step 3-Multiply 1 and 5. Bring the answer (5) under the six (tens column).

Step 4-Fill in the remaining digits with zeros.

Step 5-Subtract. *Don't forget to bring your decimal down.

Step 6-You will start your entire process over (divide, multiply, and subtract). This is where most students make their mistake. How many fives will go into 1? If it can't, then you go to the next digit and ask, how many fives can go into 15?

Step 7-Five will go into fifteen-3 times. Bring your 3 straight up to the top. Make sure it stays in the ones column.

Step 8-Fill in the remaining digits up top with zeros.

Step 9-Multiply 3 and 5.

Step 10-Bring the 15 down.

Step 11-Fill in the remaining digits with zeros.

Step 12 -Subtract. *Don't forget to bring down your decimal

Step 13-How many fives will go into 8?

Step 14-Five will go into eight once. Bring the one up to the top. Make sure that it stays in the tenths column.

Step 15-Fill in the remaining digit with a zero.

Step 16-Multiply 1 and 5.

Step 17-Put the 5 under the eight tenths.

Step 18-Fill in the remaining digit with a zero.

Step 19-Subtract

Step 20-Since five does not fit into three, you will see how many times it fits into 30.

Step 21-Five will go into the number thirty 6 times. Bring the 6 to the top. It will go into the hundredths column.

Step 22-Multiply 5 and 6 hundredths.

Step 23-Bring the answer (thirty hundredths) to the bottom.

Step 24-Subtract at the bottom. Then add up all of your quotients at the top. Each person will get $13.16.
