Question

# The value of 845 ÷ 5 is _________.

Hint:

## The correct answer is: 169

### 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  8455  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.Area model representation for 8455 : 100           60             9    845   345   45    345    45    0 The answer obtained for 845/5 is 169.

Performing division of two numbers isn't a big task. But, in area model one should construct block table to solve a problem. It is an easy way of performing division.
Hence, For the given Question 8455 the division becomes:
100          60         9

 845 345 45 345 45 0
The answer obtained for 845 / 5 is 169.
This is the process of division through area model.
