1
DIVIDING WITH DECIMAL DIVISORS Get ready to get moving

2
KEEPING IT SIMPLE Let's start with an easy problem. 2.4 divided by.2

3
JUST DIVIDE! 2 / 2 =1 Forget about the decimals for now

4
1 X 2 =2 Multiply

5
2 - 2 = 0 BRING DOWN THE 4 Subtract, bring down

6
REPEAT, DIVIDE AGAIN 4 divided by 2 = 2

7
MULTIPLY 2 x 2 = 4

8
4 - 4 = 0 Subtract

9
OKAY... Now the fun part

10
IT'S A MOVING EXPERIENCE Here's what you do... Move the divisor's decimal over to make it a whole number Since you moved that decimal over one place to the right... Move the decimal in the dividend over one place to the right and... Bring that decimal straight up into the quotient

11
SO THERE IT IS 2.4 divided by.2 = 24

12
YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED Your quotient is bigger than your dividend and divisor That happens with decimals Freaky, right? Here's something I noticed... It's your baby picture
