Mental math like if 12 into 72 it will not be a double digit if you divide 100 by 10 it will be double digits. Most times if you have a tripple digit number and divide it by double digit the answer will be a double digit.

No.

No it would be 2-3 digets depending on the number.

Because, you can divide 51 divided by 4 is 12 times. And if you divide 51 divided by 6 itβs only 8 times

Because the quotient 62/7 is a smaller number than the quotient 62/5. Specifically, 5 goes into 62 more than 10 times, but 7 goes into 62 less than 10 times. Once you pass ten, you generally need another place-value (digit) before the decimal point, in order to represent the number in all of its scope and grandeur.

You can't tell anything about the quotient until you know whatthe divisor is going to be.-- If I divide your 4,796 by 4, the quotient is 1,199 . . . 4 digits.-- And if I divide it by 2,398, the quotient is 2 . . . . only 1 digit.

No.

Unless you are using remainders, no because the divisor may not divide evenly into the dividend you idiots.

no it does not thank you

500. The smallest 3 digit quotient is 100, so 5 x 100 = 500.

Ignoring digits after the decimal point, if the number of digits in the numerator is at least two more than the number of digits in the denominator then the quotient is greater than 10.If the number of digits is only one more, then the first digit of the numerator must be greater than the first digit if the denominator. If they are the same, then the second digit of the N must be greater than the second digit of the D. If they are the same, compare the third digits and so on.Other wise, the quotient is not greater than 10.For example, you can multiply the divisor by 10 (just add a zero, if it's a whole number), and check whether the divident is greater than that, or not.

0.5416 The 6 is overlined.

2 or 3 digits.

No it would be 2-3 digets depending on the number.

Divide the 2-digit number by the 1-digit number. If the quotient comes out a whole number, then the big one is a multiple of the small one.

The easiest way is to divide 10000 (the smallest 5 digfit number possible) by 13. It will not divide without remainder. You don't need to know what digits come after the decimal point in the quotient. Round UP the quotient and then multiply that by 13. 10000/13 = 769.some digits Rounded up = 770 770*13 = 10010
