To help you solidify your understanding, we’ve created a set of flashcards and a practice video. These tools will help you test your knowledge and improve your skills in dividing using area models.

## Division Using Area Models

###### Example 1: Dividing 268 by 2

To divide 268 by 2 using an area model, follow these steps:

**Visualize the Problem:**Imagine a rectangle with an area of 268 square units and one side length of 2 units.

The task is to find the length of the other side.

**Break Down the Area:**Divide 268 into parts that are easier to work with: 200, 60, and 8.

Each part represents a smaller rectangle within the larger one.

**Divide Each Part:**200 divided by 2 equals 100.

60 divided by 2 equals 30.

8 divided by 2 equals 4.

**Combine the Results:**The lengths of the smaller rectangles are 100, 30, and 4.

Adding these together gives 134.

Therefore, 268 ÷ 2 equals 134.

###### Example 2: Dividing 856 by 8

For 856 divided by 8 using an area model, follow these steps:

**Visualize the Problem:**Imagine a rectangle with an area of 856 square units and one side length of 8 units.

The task is to find the length of the other side.

**Break Down the Area:**Divide 856 into parts that are easier to work with: 800 and 56.

**Divide Each Part:**800 divided by 8 equals 100.

56 divided by 8 equals 7.

**Combine the Results:**The lengths of the smaller rectangles are 100 and 7.

Adding these together gives 107.

Therefore, 856 ÷ 8 equals 107.

###### Conclusion
