Have you ever planned a dinner? Or have you gone to a dinner party? Part of the planning is to make sure everyone has sufficient food and drink. You also need to ensure that you have enough plates, cups and silverware for everyone. Division can help you out with that! In this video we will solve some division problems that have four-digits in the dividend and two-digits in the divisor using different division methods. Let’s see how division with larger numbers is similar to what you already know about division.

Find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
