In this GCSE Maths quiz you will learn a few hints and tips that will make division a little bit easier! Use the divisibility tests when you are applying the ‘common sense’ check to your answers, and you can even use them to impress your friends!
Knowing these divisibility tests can even help you with long division. If you have to divide by a number greater than 10, see if you can break it into its factors. Then perform repeated division until you reach an answer. So, if you are asked to divide a number by 24, you could divide it by 4, and then divide the result by 6. This is much easier, and less likely to result in mistakes, than the traditional long division method!
