You are going to spend some valuable time practising for the SATs Maths papers.

In this activity, you will practise using the **bus stop division method **to divide decimal numbers by integers.

You will also have to solve some worded problems using this method.

**Example 1: bus stop division**

Here is a quick recap of how the above calculation was carried out:

1. How many 2's go into the first digit, 6? Answer = 3, write on the line.

2. Put the decimal point in!

3. How many 2's go into 7? Answer = 3 with a remainder 1. The remainder 1 is carried over to the 2 to make 12.

4. How many 2's go into 12? Answer = 6.

**Example 2: Using the bus stop method to solve division problems using decimal numbers.**

Sam buys 4 pots of paint for £8.12, how much does one pot cost?

Answer = £2.03

See the working out below using the bus stop method.

Over to you now to have a go at some questions yourself!
