Question

# The value of 602 ÷ 7 is __________.

Hint:

## The correct answer is: 86

### In Mathematics, an area model is a rectangular model used for calculation of a division and multiplication of numbers. Here, we define quotient and divisor as length and width of a rectangle.METHOD: One can do division in area model through blocks. we first try to divide the first most number of a dividend with the divisor and replace rest of the places of the dividend as 0  and so on till we get the number that is less than divisor as a remainder.Answer: As we seen the method for division of numbers using area model then, Our goal is to find  602 ÷ 7 hence, let us try to evaluate through blocks of a area model.In block representation since only dividend changes I only updated dividend. Divisor remains constant in area model.Representation of a block diagram:               000           80        6     602    602    42     000     42    0 Therefore, the required answer is 086 ~ 86

As we discussed earlier, Division of numbers using area model requires block diagram. No of blocks Required is the product of number of digits in dividend to the number of digits in divisor.
Hence, to solve 602 ÷ 7 we need 32 ==6 blocks to construct area block diagram.
Hence, the division process follows the below structure:
000                       80            6

 602 602 42 602 42 0
Hence, answer obtained for the given Question:  602 ÷ 7 = 086 = 86.
