Worksheet Overview

This worksheet is about multiplying or dividing by powers of 10, such as 0.1, 10, 100 and 1000.

 

Multiplying by 10, 100 or 1000

Each digit moves to the left 1 place, 2 places or 3 places. 

Use zeros to fill in blank columns.

 

55.6 × 10 = 556

55.6 × 100 = 5560

55.6 × 1000 = 55600

 

Dividing by 10, 100 or 1000

Each digit moves to the right 1 place, 2 places or 3 places. 

Use zeros to fill in blank columns.

 

55.6 ÷ 10 = 5.56

55.6 ÷ 100 = 0.556

55.6 ÷ 1000 = 0.0556

 

 

Multiplying by 0.1

Each digit moves to the left -1 place. This is really 1 place to the right.

55.6 × 0.1 = 5.56

 

Multiplying by 0.1 makes a number smaller.

 

Dividing by 0.1

Each digit moves to the right -1 place. This is really 1 place to the left.

55.6 ÷ 0.1 = 556

 

Dividing by 0.1 makes a number bigger.
