Properties of Division of Decimal Numbers

We will discuss here about the properties of division of decimal numbers.

1. When a decimal number is divided by 1, the quotient is the decimal number itself.

For example:

(i) 5.6 ÷ 1 = 5.6

(ii) 3.19 ÷ 1 = 3.19

(iii) 11.01 ÷ 1 = 11.01

(iv) 1.001 ÷ 1 = 1.001

2. When the decimal number is divided by itself the quotient is 1.

For example:

(i) 3.1 ÷ 3.1 = 1

(ii) 11.19 ÷ 11.19 = 1

(iii) 27.01 ÷ 27.01 = 1

(iv) 1.111 ÷ 1.111 = 1

3. When 0 is divided by any decimal number, the quotient is 0.

For example:

(i) 0 ÷ 2.0 = 0

(ii) 0 ÷ 3.12 = 0

(iii) 0 ÷ 19.7 = 0

(iv) 0 ÷ 0.1 = 0

4. The reciprocal of 0 does not exist, so we cannot divide any decimal number by 0.
