Dividing Decimals

Important Terminology Divisor-the number you are dividing Dividend-the number you are dividing by

Dividing with Decimals: There are 2 types of division problems involving decimal points: No decimal in the divisor Decimal in the divisor

Division with Decimals: NO decimal point in the divisor… Step 1: Write the problem in the traditional long division format Step 2: Move the decimal point in the dividend straight up into the quotient Step 3: Divide as usual Remember to divide out one more place than you are rounding to…

Division with Decimals: NO decimal point in the divisor… 2.127 24.254 - 4 02 -2-2 05 -4-4 14 -14 0 Move the decimal point straight up and divide

Division with Decimals: Yes…Decimal point in the divisor… Step 1: Write the problem in the traditional long division format Step 2: Move the decimal point in the divisor to the far right of the divisor Step 3: Move the decimal point the SAME number of places in the dividend Step 4: Move the decimal point in the dividend straight up into the quotient Step 5: Divide as usual Remember to divide out one more place than you are rounding to…

Division with Decimals: Yes… decimal point in the divisor… 21.27 0.24.2.54 - 4 02 -2-2 05 -4-4 14 -14 0 Move the decimal point outside, inside, then straight up and divide

Division Practice: Practice Problems: Find the quotient for each. 3.753  3 = 8.7  100 = 428.6 ÷ 2 = 2.436  0.12 = 97.31 ÷ 5 = 0.8542  0.2 = 1.251 0.087 214.320.3 19.4624.271

Division Practice: Practice Problems: Find the quotient for each. 245.9  1000 = 0.65  5 = 4.563 ÷ 0.003 =21.35  0.7 = 67.337 ÷ 0.02 =1500.4  1000 = 0.2459 0.13 1,521 30.5 3366.85 1.5004
