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
