Types of Problems
There is one type of problem in this exercise:
- Find the quotient: This problem has a division problem that involves dividing a whole number by a decimal. The user is to find the answer and write it in the space provided.
Strategies
This exercise is easy to get accuracy badges with the standard algorithm. The speed badges are medium because the algorithm can be time-consuming.
- A calculator goes against the spirit of the problem but can increase speed.
- The standard algorithm is not very time-efficient so users might need to develop a new method to get speed badges.
- Most of the time the final answer is an integer, but in a few problems users can get a final answer that is a terminating decimal. Research indicates no answers that don't terminate in decimal form.
Real-life Applications
- Decimals appear in every-day media to display information to consumers.
