Can someone remind me of how to divide decimals?
Let me use an example to clarify the process of dividing decimals. Suppose I wanted to divide
As we can see, there is a decimal in the denominator -
Now let's go back to the original fraction:
Seeing as how we can multiply
In short, to divide decimals, you convert the denominator into a more manageable format by multiplying it by the power of ten that makes the denominator a whole number. Then, you multiply both the numerator and the denominator by the same power of ten and then simplify the quotient.
Hope this helped!
