Decimals

Division

Decimals never divide - - always move the decimal of the divisor until it is a whole number -- then move the decimal of the dividend (in the box the same number of places) add zeros as needed. Place the decimal of the quotient (answer) directly above that decimal in the dividend. Place only one digit of each number of the dividend.

If no decimal point is visible -- place a decimal point behind the last number.

Go over your work checking for any errors.

A scrap box should be used to do the calculations. Try not to get into the habit of doing your scrap work on another piece of paper. It is much easier to find a mistake if all the work is in front of you and located close to the problem.
