Divide Decimals by Tenths
Dividing Decimals: Learn
The procedure for the division of decimals is very similar to the division of whole numbers.
How to divide a decimal number by a one digit decimal number (e.g. 0.424 ÷ 0.8):
Place the divisor (0.8) before the division bracket and place the dividend (0.424) under it.
In this lesson, the divisors will all have decimal digits into the tenths. To simplify the problem, multiply both the divisor and dividend by 10 so that the divisor is not a decimal but a whole number. In other words move the decimal point one place to the right in both the divisor and dividend.
Bring the decimal point up directly above where it is in the dividend.
Proceed with normal long division, using placeholder zeros as necessary
