Welcome to Mathnasium’s Math Tricks series. Today we are using number sense to divide statements where the divisors (the numbers we are dividing by) have more than two factors (numbers which divide evenly into the divisor). Rather than dividing a dividend (the number to be divided) by a challenging divisor, the trick is to break it down into smaller, more manageable parts, and then divide by each part.
