a company donates 935 pencils to a school. the pencils are divided evenly among 9 classrooms. the rest of the pencils are given to the library. how many pencils were doamated to the donated to the school and to tje library?
the problem deals with a division and the rest of it, that is dividing the total amount of pencils into 9 classrooms and the rest, lets express it as fraction: 935/9 = 103 + 8/9 that is, if we multiply 103*9 we get 927 and are 8 pencils left over, therefore, 8 pencils are donated to the library and each classroom gets 103 pencils, in total 935 pencils are donated.
Divide 935 by 9, which is 103 R8. The remainder is how many pencils were donated to the library. So, 103 pencils were donated to the school and 8 pencils were donated to the library.
