Dividing Decimals by Ten


When it comes to decimal division, it can sometimes be pretty frustrating. But it's actually really easy as long as you know your methods. So let's get started! This topic is a piece of cake!

Let's Get Started...

Let's say that we have 3.2/10. How do we solve it? Well, its simple:
3.2{First, put it in proper format}

Now, just simply divide:

3.2= 0.32
How did I get 0.32?
All I did was move the decimal point once (because there is only one zero in 10) from right to left [decreasing] and I immediately got my quotient!
Was that a piece of cake or what?!
