# 144 divided by 36

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking for the result of dividing 144 by 36. This is a basic arithmetic operation where we need to find out how many times 36 goes into 144.

$4$

The final answer is $4$.

#### Steps to Solve

1. Identify the operation We need to perform the division operation. The question asks for $144$ divided by $36$.

2. Set up the division Write the division expression as: $$\frac{144}{36}$$

3. Perform the division Calculate how many times $36$ fits into $144$. We know from basic arithmetic that: $$36 \times 4 = 144$$ Thus, $144$ divided by $36$ equals $4$.

4. Write the final answer The result of the division, expressed concretely, is simply the answer from the division operation.

The final answer is $4$.

Dividing numbers is one of the fundamental skills in arithmetic, essential for more advanced math concepts. In this case, since $36$ fits perfectly into $144$, we found that the quotient is a whole number.
• A common mistake is miscalculating the multiplication aspect (e.g., estimating $36 \times 3$ instead of realizing it's $4$).
