'Practise Dividing Decimals by 100' worksheet

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, O grid we notice that tens are 100 times smaller than thousands, ones are 100 times smaller than hundreds etc...

 

 

e.g. Work out:

 

54.6 ÷ 100 = 0.546 

 

Here is 54.6 in a place value grid.

 

Decimal Place Value

    5 4 . 6    

 

 

Answer:

Each digit moves two places to the right.

Remember to fill in that 0 in the ones column.

 

So  54.6 ÷ 100 = 0.546
