DIVIDE DECIMALS

PROBLEMS

Do the problem yourself first!

1.   What property of division allows us to rewrite If the divisor and the dividend are multiplied by the same number, the quotient will not change.

Lesson 11, Property 2.

2.   Make each divisor a whole number.  Calculate the quotient.

4.  Distinguish between the dividend and the divisor, and find the
4.  quotient.

4.  a)  .0005 ÷ .05 = .01             b)  .05 ÷ .0005 = 100

5.  c)  1.6 ÷ 16 = .1                 d)  16 ÷ 1.6 = 10

5.  a)  What number times 5 is 44?   44 ÷ 5 = 8.8

5.  b)  What number times .08 is .004?   .004 ÷ .08 = .05
