Division of a Whole Number by a Decimal



In division of a whole number by a decimal number the rules are discussed here.



(i) Count the number of decimal digits in the divisor.

(ii) Add as many zeroes to the dividend.

(iii) Remove the decimal in the divisor.

(iv) Divide as usual.




Let us consider some of the examples:

(i) 42 ÷ 0.7

Solution:

42 ÷ 0.7




= 420 ÷ 7








Therefore, 42 ÷ 0.7 = 60



(ii) 441 ÷ 0.21

Solution:

441 ÷ 0.21




44100 ÷ 21










Therefore, 441 ÷ 0.21 = 2100



(iii) 8133 ÷ 0.003

Solution:

8133 ÷ 0.003




8133000 ÷ 3




















Therefore, 8133 ÷ 0.003 = 2711000



(iv) 48 ÷ 1.92

Solution:

48 ÷ 1.92




4800 ÷ 192












Therefore, 48 ÷ 1.92 = 25



(v) 722 ÷ 1.444

Solution:

722 ÷ 1.444





722000 ÷ 1444








Therefore, 722 ÷ 1.444 = 500
