*(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.

*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
