UNIT 16: DECIMAL DIVISION

Here's how you divide one decimal by another: Suppose you want to divide 4.5 by 1.8
First, you write your problem as you normally would:



Next, you move the decimals in both the numbers to the right the same number of times until the divisor is a whole number.



The decimal point in your answer will be lined up with the one in the number you are dividing into. Now, you do your division:


Next, if you have a remainder, bring down a zero from the number being divided and continue:


Check you answer for reasonableness by ignoring the part past the decimal and dividing in your head! For example, in this last problem 45/18 is about 2 so the answer should be near 2.

Divide these decimals: (Don't forget to move your decimal points, if you can!)
These problems all are hard!
