3.7 Dividing Decimals by Decimals.
Objective: by the end of class students can change a divisor with decimals into a whole number and then divide into the dividend to find the quotient.

We follow the same rules for dividing whole numbers, as we divide numbers with decimals in them.
0 1 5 - 5 2 5 -2 5 0 1 5 - 5 2 5 -2 5 5 075 5 0.75

Dividing by a Decimal Number
0 0 6 - 0 4 2 -4 2 This time the DIVISOR will have a decimal in it. We will need to change it into a whole number first by moving the decimal to the right side.

Dividing by a Decimal Number
0 0 6 - 0 4 2 -4 2 Now we must multiply the DIVIDEND by 10 too! When we do this the decimal will now move to the right 1 space. When we changed the divisor to a whole number we multiplied it by 10. That is why the decimal moved from a part of a whole to a whole x 10 x 10

0 3 -0 Find each Product =3 Count the total number of decimal places in the divisor and move the decimal the same amount of spaces in the dividend. 3 6 First divide the equation like you normally would. -3 6 Place the decimal point directly above in the quotient.

0 5 -0 Find each Product =5 Count the total number of decimal places in the divisor and move the decimal the same amount of spaces in the dividend. 7 5 First divide the equation like you normally would. -7 5 Place the decimal point directly above in the quotient.

0 9 -0 Find each Product =9 Count the total number of decimal places in the divisor and move the decimal the same amount of spaces in the dividend. 9 9 First divide the equation like you normally would. -9 9 Place the decimal point directly above in the quotient.

3.7 Dividing Decimals by Decimals.
Objective: by the end of class students can change a divisor with decimals into a whole number and then divide into the dividend to find the quotient using powers of 10 and variables.

Dividing by using a variable
