1 Division to decimal points

2 We will use the example below. It works out neatly to one decimal place 37 ÷ 8

3 First, put the problem in more useful form 37 8 How many times does 8 go into 37? 8 * 4 = 32 so it is 4 with a remainder of 5 Next ask:

4 Here is how it looks R doesn’t go into 5 so that’s it. Right? No. Wrong.

5 Now, you seem stuck But not if you remember this simple phrase

6 Add a point, add a zero Now instead of being stuck with a remainder, you just keep dividing.

7 Ask how many times does 8 go into 50 (not 5) Answer is 6. Put 6 after the decimal point. 6

8 *6=48 so put 48 under the 50 and subtract

9 Now, add a zero after the 20 and repeat the process

10 How many times does 8 go into 20? 2. So put 2 after the 6 16 under the 20. And repeat until you can't or until you get bored
