1 Answer

Answer:

#3.18 div 2 =1.59 #

Explanation:

#3.18/2 = 3.18 div 2#

Just start to divide the bottom number into the first.

#2| ul(3.18 )#

2 goes into 3, one time with 1 left over. Write the decimal point.
Carry the 1 to the next digit on the right to make #11#

#2| ul(3.^1 18)#
#color(white)(....)1.#

Then how many times does 2 go into 11? 5 times with one left over.

#2| ul(3.^1 1^1 8)#
#color(white)(.....)1.""5#

Carry the 1 to the right and you make 18.
How many times does 2 go into 18? 9 times.

#2| ul(3.^1 1^1 8)#
#color(white)(....)1." "5""9#

This is shown with the answer below. It would be the same for the answer above.
