In these worksheets, students will learn to solve word problems involving division.

The first step to solving any story-based problem is first to identify the operations that will be required to form a solution. There are some common keywords that will indicate that quotient is required. The common words and phrases we see that indicate this are: average, per, out of, ratio of, percent, equal pieces, or split. If a word problem requires us to find a quotient this means that is either be shared or grouped in some way. You will often find problems that include solutions with remainders. That is normally indicated by the words: remaining or left, in most of the problems we see. Your students will do division to solve simple word problems. Problems range from the very basic, introductory level (no remainders), to the intermediate level (with remainders), and subject matter includes both money problems and real-world situations (dividing numbers of items into equal and unequal groups). Some worksheets include only problems that involve remainders.

This set of worksheets contains step-by-step solutions to sample problems, both simple and more complex problems, a review, and a quizzes. Independent practice worksheets are also provided at the basic for the students to practice rudimentary skills, so that they can master the fundamentals of understanding and solving a division word problem. When finished with this set of worksheets, students will be able to solve both basic and intermediate word problems involving division. Answer keys have been provided for the set for instructors. The set consists of multiple pages, and some worksheets are two pages long, so be sure that you have printed all of them. These worksheets explain how to solve word problems involving division. Sample problems are solved and practice problems are provided.
