Divide a 4 digit number by a 1 digit number using area or array model

Let's use an area model to find the answer to $8024\div8$8024÷8.

a

We set up the area model using a rectangle like this.

$8$8 | |

Total area: $8024$8024 |

Now if we don't know straight away what $8024\div8$8024÷8 is, we start with something we do know, like groups of $1000$1000.

Fill in the area used so far if we take out $1000$1000 groups of $8$8.

$1000$1000 | ||

$8$8 | $\editable{}$ | |

Total area: $8024$8024 |

b

How much area is remaining?

$1000$1000 | ||

$8$8 | $8000$8000 | $\editable{}$ |

Total area: $8024$8024 |

c

What is the width of the second rectangle?

$1000$1000 | $\editable{}$ | |

$8$8 | $8000$8000 | $24$24 |

Total area: $8024$8024 |

d

Using the area model above, what is $8024\div8$8024÷8?
