Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this activity, you will divide whole numbers by 10 and 100.

 

When we divide by 10, we shift each digit one place to the right.

So 64 ÷ 10 = 6.4

 

When we divide by 100, we shift each digit two places to the right.

So 64 ÷ 100 =  0.64

 

 

e.g. Work out:

37 ÷ 100

 

Answer:

Shift each digit two places to the right.

So 37 ÷ 100 =  0.37

 

 

e.g. Work out:

7 ÷ 100

 

Answer:

Shift each digit two places to the right.

Fill in the blank spaces with zeros.

So 7 ÷ 100 =  0.07

 

 

e.g. Work out:

30 ÷ 100

 

Answer:

Shift each digit two places to the right.

Leave off the last zero.

So 30 ÷ 100 =  0.30 = 0.3
