When dividing a decimal by a whole number, place the decimal point in the quotient directly above the decimal point in the dividend. Then divide as you would with whole numbers. 1 -2 09 4 - 8 18 9. - 18 0

0 -8 4 18 7 - 1 2 6 1. - 6 0 0 0 0 5 You can not have a remainder when dividing DECIMALS, so add 0’s to the dividend, bring them down, and continue until 0 is the remainder

632.55 5 -30 25 4 -24 15 2 -12 3 Remember: You can not have a remainder when dividing DECIMALS, so add 0’s to the dividend, bring them down, and continue until 0 is the remainder 0 0 5. -30 x

0 -4 5 18 5 - 18 2. 0 One more time!

1 -2 09 4 - 8 18 9. - 18 0 When dividing a decimal by a decimal, multiply the divisor and the dividend by the same power of 10. Then place the decimal point in the quotient directly above the decimal point in the dividend and divide... 2298..
