1-4 Dividing Decimals There are three ways to write a division problem. divisor dividend divisor dividend ÷ divisor There are two parts to today's lesson. Divisor is a whole number 8 388.8 Divisor is a decimal 0.5 456.25

A. Divisor is a whole number 8 388.8 Steps: Raise the decimal point above the bar Divide normally Ex. 1 8 388.8 Ex. 2 18.2 4 3.) 4.38 12 4.) 45.2 6 ÷ ÷

B. Divisor is a decimal 0.5 456.25 Steps: Move the decimal pt. to the right until the divisor becomes a whole # Move the decimal pt. in the dividend the same # of places Raise the decimal point and divide normally 1.) 0.5 456.25 2.) 5.472 1.2 ÷

3.) 918 0.03 4.) 85 3 ÷ Demonstrate Understanding: Find the quotient. 1.) 15.24 6 ÷ 2.) 7.524 2.2
