'Decimals: Dividing by 10' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Number: Multiplication and Division

Curriculum subtopic:   Multiply/Divide Using 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...

*Note that the U for Units is another term for Ones.


e.g. Work out:

546 ÷ 10 = 54.6 


Here is 546 in a Th, H, T, U grid.

Place value grid



Each digit moves one place to the right.


So  546 ÷ 10 = 54.6
