Directions: Using the digits 1 through 9 at most one time each, fill in the boxes to create the smallest (or largest) whole number quotient.

### Hint

What does the number on the left represent? What does the number on the right represent? What digits should we use? Which digits should we not use?

### Answer

Smallest: 126 ÷ 9 = 14

Largest: 987 ÷ 1 = 987

Largest: 987 ÷ 1 = 987

I really like this problem! I actually got a different answer by dividing 123/9 which is 13 2/3. I’m going to share this with some teachers tomorrow and I may add something along the lines as “without a remainder”.

(0x1)+(2×3)=6

0+6=6

Never mind! I just read the problem again alittle more carefully and saw the words “whole number quotient”! Great problem, thanks!

– 7 l 66

– 5 6 x 7

6 9 3 ,1 2 9 (3+6=9) something when wrong and I don’t know what happen but

-6 3 I tried my best.

456\9=211

100/5 = 20

by using 20 nickels

102/6 = 17

110/10=11

2/1=2

246/2=123

2/1=2

126 divided by 5=25

126 divided by 9 equals 14

I did 286 divided by 4 = 71.2 or 71 with a remainder of 2

987 divide 1= 987 it is the only thing I could come up with
