Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The goal of this task is to perform long division with remainder in a context. The teacher will likely need to provide multiple levels of support on this question. First there is a lot of information on the box of staples and the relevant information for the task is the total quantity of staples and number of staples in each strip. Secondly, it might be helpful to have some packages of staples on hand so that students can see how they are packaged, in particular that the strips come in pairs and that there are usually 24 strips per package.
