# How do you divide using repeated subtraction?

## How do you divide using repeated subtraction?

Similarly, to solve a division problem through repeated subtraction, we repetitively group and subtract the same number again and again to find the answer.

### How would you divide a number using repeated subtraction for function dividend?

Approach #1: Division using Repeated Subtraction We know that divisions can be solved by repeatedly subtracting the divisor from the dividend until it becomes less than the divisor. The total number of times the repeated subtraction is carried out is equal to the quotient.

#### How is division subtraction?

**What is repeated subtraction Class 8?**

Finding the square root of a number by repeatedly subtracting successive odd numbers from the given square number, till you get zero is known as repeated subtraction method.

**How to do Division as repeated subtraction in math?**

Draw another group of four to the picture. And another group. And another. And one more group. You drew _____ groups of four. 5 × 4 = 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 20. Let’s reverse the process. Start out with 20 sticks. Make one group of four. In your mind, “move it away” from the picture. Form another group of four.

## How many stars can you subtract with repeated subtraction?

In the given image we can see 34 stars. Now, using repeated subtraction, we can group them in smaller groups of 4 stars in each group. We can start to subtract 4 stars repeatedly until we are left with 0 or a number less than 4. 34 – 4 = 30 30 – 4 = 26 26 – 4 = 22 22 – 4 = 18 18 – 4 = 14 14 – 4 = 10 10 – 4 = 6 6 – 4 = 2

### How to write a subtraction sentence for Division?

Write a subtraction sentence for each division sentence. Multiplication is like jumps on the number line. 5 × 4 = 20. Five jumps of 4 gets you to 20. Five jumps of 4 gets you from 20 till 0. What division is illustrated here?

#### What is the number of times 4 is subtracted?

The number of times 4 is subtracted is the quotient. So, 8 is the quotient and the leftover stars are the remainder. So, 2 is the remainder. Since repeated subtraction is division, it can be written in 2 ways.
