Maths DLO #2

For maths I am creating a DLO that shows that I understand my group strategy and that I am ready to move on.

   The question is. There are 563 sweets which need to be shared equally between 7 jars. What is the maximum number of sweets that can be placed in every jar ?

How many jellybean's will be left over ?...
So to start off I say how many times does 7 go into 5 which is 0, then I move on and ask myself how many times does 7 go into 56, well I already know that it is 8 because 7x8 is 56 so I put down 8 and move on. Last but not I figure out how many times does 7 go into 3 which is 2 because 3x2 is 6 with 1 left over and I use the 1 left over as a remainder.

   So the total answer I came up with was 82 r1.
