# Division of Money

In division of money we will learn how to divide the amounts of money by a number. We carryout division with money the same way as in decimal numbers. We put decimal point in the quotient after two places from the right.

The process of division of money is performed as the ordinary division of a number.

Worked-out examples on division of money by a number:

1. Divide 75 paisa by 5

Hence, on dividing Rs. 62 by 7 we get the quotient is Rs. 8.85 and the remainder is Re. 0.05 or 5 paisa.

You can do division of money  in the same way that you divide ordinary numbers.

6. Divide Rs. 35.45 by 5

Solution:

Method I:

 Q = Rs. 7 and 10 p = Rs. 7.10 You can write rupees and paisa in separate column and divide them separately.

Method II:

Divide Rs. 35.45 by 5

 Q = Rs. 7.10 Separate the rupees and paisa with a point.Divide the rupee first.Put a point after the quotient of this division.Now divide the paisa.
