Dividing Decimals

Let's first review some terms: divisor, dividend, quotient

Here's another example. In order to divide decimals, you must remember one important thing: the divisor must be a whole number.

In order to make the decimal a whole number you must:

- Move the divisor's decimal to the right of the digits to make the number whole.
- Then the decimal point in the dividend must be moved the same number of places to the right as the divisor's decimal was moved.
- Compute the problem. The decimal point in the quotient is placed directly above the new position of the decimal point in the dividend.
