Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, we will learn how to halve simple decimals by dividing them by 2.

For Example:

Question 1:

Find half of the number 0.1

0.1 ÷ 2 =  __________

Set out a division calculation but fill in an extra zero so that 0.1 becomes 0.10

So half of 0.1 is 0.05

Question 2:

Find half of the number 0.51

0.51 ÷ 2 =  __________

Set out a division calculation but fill in an extra zero so that 0.51 becomes 0.510

So half of 0.51 is 0.255
