  # Division by 10 and 100

In this worksheet, students must divide whole numbers by 10 and 100. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Number: Multiplication and Division

Curriculum subtopic:   Multiply/Divide Using Decimals

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

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

Shift each digit two places to the right.

So 37 ÷ 100 =  0.37

e.g. Work out:

7 ÷ 100

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

Shift each digit two places to the right.

Leave off the last zero.

So 30 ÷ 100 =  0.30 = 0.3
