Dividing a Decimal by Decimal


In this chapter you will learn how to divide decimals by decimals. To do this all that you have to do is make the divisor into a whole number.
For example if you have 0.35/0.7 you first have to change the divisor which is 0.7 into a whole number. So first I will have to move the decimal point to the right one place value. And since we changed the divisor we will also have to do the same thing we did with the dividend.Our problem will now become 3.5/7 and the answer will be .5 since 0.5*7=3.5.
To understand this topic better I suggest watching the video
