# Worksheet on Division of Decimal Fractions

We will practice the questions given in the worksheet on division of decimal fractions. While dividing the decimal numbers ignore the decimal point and perform the division as usual and then put the decimal point in the quotient in such a way, that the decimal places in the quotient becomes equal to the decimal places in the dividend.

1. Divide the following:

(i) 3.12 by 8

(ii) 12.675 by 3

(iii) 120.12 by 26

(iv) 8.016 by 24

2. Find the quotient of the following:

(i) 8.64 ÷ 0.24

(ii) 0.5 ÷ 0.25

(iii) 0.993 ÷ 0.331

(iv) 0.027 ÷ 0.03

(v) 4.05 ÷ 1000

(vi) 465.5 ÷ 10

3. Convert each of the following into a decimal:

(i) $$\frac{3}{4}$$

(ii) $$\frac{21}{4}$$

(iii) 6$$\frac{3}{5}$$

(iv)3$$\frac{1}{4}$$

(v) 5$$\frac{5}{8}$$

4. If 3105 ÷ 27 = 115, find the quotient in each of the following without actual performing division:

(i) 31.05 ÷ 27

(ii) 3.105 ÷ 27

(iii) 31050 ÷ 27

(iv) 3.105 ÷ 0.27

(v) 3150 ÷ 0.027

(vi) 0.3105 ÷ 0.027

5. Fill in the blanks:

(i) 13.1 ÷ ______ = 13.1

(ii) 5.01 ÷ 1 = ______

(iii) 7.9 ÷ 7.9 = ______

(iv) 18.65 ÷ ______ = 1
