I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IS A THIRD GRADE WORKSHEET! THIS IS SOO INAPPROPRIATE. THEY HAVE NEVER DONE LONG DIVISION OR REMAINDERS & THERE IS ONE WEEK OF SCHOOL LEFT & THIS IS WHAT THE TEACHER HANDS OUT.....86 DIVIDED BY 9, 17 DIVIDED BY 3, 73 DIVIDED BY 8 ! HOW MANY FLUID OUNCES IN A 1/4 QUART? THIS IS CRAZY

Calm down, it's not that difficult. Your child is making valuable use of his last week in school.
Think back to your mathematics background  I'm sure you understand this sufficiently to explain it.
86/9  9*9 = 81, so 86/9 = 9 remainder 5. Find the largest multiple of 9 that is less than 86
17/3  3*5 = 15, so 17/3 = 5 remainder 3
73/8  8*9 = 72, so 73/8 = 9 remainder 1
1 quart = 32 fluid ounces, so 1/4 quart = 32/4 = 8 fluid ounces.
