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**
