## What is the correct repeated subtraction for 15 3?

## What is the correct repeated subtraction for 15 3?

Because multiplication is a form of repeated addition, it follows that division is a form of repeated subtraction. For example, 15 ÷ 3 asks you to repeatedly subtract 3 from 15 until you reach zero: 15 – 3 = 12 – 3 = 9 – 3 = 6 – 3 = 3 – 3 = 0.

## What is the answer of division is repeated?

Division is also called repeated subtraction.

**What is called repeated subtraction?**

Repeated subtraction is a method in which a number is subtracted into equal number of items from a large group. This method is also known as division.

**How is division and subtraction related?**

Division is to multiplication as subtraction is to addition. Subtraction is related to but not exactly like addition; division can be calculated by repeated subtraction in a way that is related to (but not exactly like) the way multiplication can be calculated by repeated addition.

### What is a division sentence example?

20 ÷ 5 = 4 is an example of a division sentence. It contains three numbers, a division sign and an equals sign. 20 ÷ 5 = 4 means that 20 shared into 5 equal groups would give us 4 in each group.

### What is repeated subtraction to find the quotient?

We will learn how to find the quotient and remainder by the method of repeated subtraction a division problem may be solved. When 8 is subtracted from 16, 2 times, then we get the remainder zero. Hence, 16 ÷ 8 = 2, 2 is the quotient. When 5 is subtracted from 20, four times, then we get the remainder zero.

**How do you check divisibility by 7?**

The divisibility rule of 7 states that, if a number is divisible by 7, then “the difference between twice the unit digit of the given number and the remaining part of the given number should be a multiple of 7 or it should be equal to 0”. For example, 798 is divisible by 7.

**What is a division sentence?**

A division sentence is a number sentence that uses the operation of division. Division has an opposite operation, which is multiplication, where multiplication and division undo or reverse each other. We can use the opposite operation of multiplication, or we can use repeated addition, to complete a division sentence.

#### How many division facts can you write to represent the factors of 7?

Solution: The factors of 7 are 1, 7, and factors of 7 are 1, 7. Therefore, the Least Common Multiple of 7 and 7 is 7 and the Greatest Common Divisor (GCD) of 7 and 7 is 7.
