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
