Let's use an area model to find the answer to $133\div7$133÷​7.

a

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

$7$7
Total area: $133$133

Now if we don't know straight away what $133\div7$133÷​7 is, we start with something we do know, like groups of $10$10.

Fill in the area used so far if we take out $10$10 groups of $7$7.

$10$10
$7$7 $\editable{}$
Total area: $133$133
b

How much area is remaining?

$10$10
$7$7 $70$70 $\editable{}$
Total area: $133$133
c

What is the width of the second rectangle?

  $10$10 $\editable{}$
$7$7 $70$70 $63$63
  Total area: $133$133
