Open in App

Solution

The correct option is **B** 224

Total number of new paintings = 1224.

Total number of years =8.

To find number of new paintings accepted in each year, divide 1224 by 8.

The division equation will be:

1224÷8=153.

∴ After expanding the division equation will become:

1224÷8=(1000+224)÷8

=(1000÷8)+(224÷8)

Solving the division method by box method and calculating the final quotient,

Also dividing 1224 by 8,

So, the final quotient 153 matches with the quotient 153 given in the division statement.

∴ The division statement can be completed as:

Therefore, the missing number in the statement will be 224.
