  # Decimals: Dividing by 100

In this worksheet, stidemts divide numbers by 100 by shifting digits two places to the right in a grid. 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 100, each digit must move two places to the right.

When we look at the columns in a Th, H, T, U grid we notice that Tens are 100 times smaller than Thousands, Units are 100 times smaller than Hundreds etc...

*Note that the U means Units, which is another word for Ones.

e.g. Work out:

54.6 × 10 = 0.546

Here is 54.6 in a Th, H, T, U grid. Each digit moves two places to the right.

Remember to fill in that 0 in the units column.

So  54.6 ÷ 100 = 0.546
