Work Step by Step

Each of these problems only require one step to solve. In A, 9 goes into 72 8 times. In B, 5 goes into 40 8 times. In C, 6 goes into 24 4 times. Each of the problems can be checked by multiplying the quotient by the divisor. If the product is equal to the dividend, then the quotient is correct. In A, 8 $\cdot$ 9 is equal to 72. In B, 8 $\cdot$ 5 is equal to 40. In C, 4 $\cdot$ 6 is equal to 24.
