# 4.03 Modelling division

## Interactive practice questions

We can divide $68$68 by $4$4 by drawing $68$68 dots in $4$4 rows.

a

To work this out we can count groups of $4$4 until we reach $68$68.

But that could take a long time if we go $1$1 group of $4$4 at a time, so let's count up in larger groups.

If we first count $10$10 groups of $4$4, how many dots will we have used?

 $\editable{}$ dots $4$4 rows $68$68 dots
b

How many dots are remaining when we take away the first $40$40?

 $40$40 dots $\editable{}$ dots $4$4 rows $68$68 dots
c

How many columns of $4$4 dots will we have in the group of $28$28?

d

Here is the complete array.

 $10$10 columns $7$7 columns $40$40 dots $28$28 dots $4$4 rows Total: $68$68 dots

Using this, what is $68\div4$68÷​4?
