You use compatible numbers.

You can check by using your estimated number and comparing it with your exact quotient.

Use the multiplication equation to check your answer

4 x 0.8 = 3.2

Multiply the quotient by the divisor to result in the dividend.If dividend/divisor=quotient, then dividend=quotient x divisor

you use multiply the divisor times the quotient & it should equal the dividend.

For example: 28 divided by 4 You think the answer is 7. Use multiplication to check. Use the quotient (7) and multiply with the divisor (4 the one outside of the house. 7 x 4 = 28. The quotient 7 is correct.

you could use a calculator or ask a teacher or ask a parent or use an online calculator or do the problem using another method thnx!! hope i helped peace out

They can be 11*11 = 121

we can multiply the divisor & the quotient to find the dividend

You use compatible numbers.

quotient is the answer to a division problem so after dividing, to check your answer, you need to take the quotient and multiply it to one of the given numbers.

Use the multiplication equation to check your answer

You can check by using your estimated number and comparing it with your exact quotient.

If you multiply the divisor by the quotient you should get the original number. For example, if I want to check 10/2 =5. I multiply the divisor 2 by the quotient 5 and check to see if it gives me back my original number, 10. 2*5 =10 so 5 was the correct quotient. Alternatively if you divide the original number by the quotient you should get the divisor. In the above example, that would be 10/5=2.
