# Mel used partial quotients to find the quotient of 378 div3. What could be the partial quotients that Mel found?

Dec 24, 2017

$\frac{378}{3} = 100 + 20 + 6 = 126$

#### Explanation:

(I'm not 100% sure what "partial quotients" means but this works...)

$378 = 300 + 60 + 18$

$\frac{300}{3} = 100$
$\frac{60}{3} = 20$
$\frac{18}{3} = 6$

So $\frac{378}{3} = 100 + 20 + 6 = 126$
