7|28

7 does not go into 2.

7 go's into 8 once with a remainder of 1.

->1

7|28

7

21

Drop the two and you have 21.

7 go's into 21 3 times. Therefore:

->13

Ok. 7 times 3 is 21.

Ok. 7 times 1 is 7.

18 Jun '08 15:12Listen this *is* quite funny. I've seen it before and I had a good laugh out of it. It was rather surpricing to being proven that 28 divided by 7 actually is 13.

But it is very hard to demonstrate this in a ascii forum as this is. And quite hard to understand the reasoning when you try to decipher the attempt.

Trust me, it's funny!- Joined

I'm in grade four but in my country we cover Calculus first, the unit circle second, what a triangle is third, and work our way backward to the task of adding cookies to other cookies and subtracting the ones we eat.*Originally posted by Dejection***Um, we did short/long division in Grade Four.

Nice. Having that solid basis, really helps with understanding the intricacies of the cookie problem.*Originally posted by nihilismor***I'm in grade four but in my country we cover Calculus first, the unit circle second, what a triangle is third, and work our way backward to the task of adding cookies to other cookies and subtracting the ones we eat.**
