# What is 57 divided by 3 equal to?

Nov 15, 2016

$57 \div 3 = 19$

#### Explanation:

This is asking "How many times can 3 "fit into" 57?

Or

"How many times can 3 be subtracted from 57?"

$57 \div 3 = 19$

By dividing: $3 | \underline{{5}^{2} 7}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\times \times \times \times \times} 19$

By estimating: $3 \times 20 = 60$
57 is 3 less than 60, so 20-1 = 19 times.
