  # Decimals: Dividing by 10

In this worksheet, students divide numbers by 10 by shifting digits one place to the right in a grid. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Maths and Numerical Reasoning

Curriculum subtopic:   Decimals

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

When we divide numbers by 10, each digit must move one place to the right.

When we look at the columns in a Th, H, T, U grid we notice that Hundreds are 10 times smaller than Thousands, Tens are 10 times smaller than Hundreds etc...

Example

Work out

546 ÷ 10 = 54.6

Here is 546 in a Th, H, T, U grid. Watch this animation to see how each digit moves one place to the right.

So  546 ÷ 10 = 54.6
