In this worksheet, carry out written divisions of decimal numbers up to 2 decimal places.

Dividing a **decimal** by a **whole number** is very similar to a normal division.

We just line up the decimal points.

Look at these examples, one without decimals and one with.

So

734 ÷ 2 = 367

and

7.34 ÷ 2 = 3.67

**Example**

Use a written division to calculate:

8.45 ÷ 5

**Answer**

8 ÷ 5 = 1 r3

34 ÷ 5 = 6 r4

45 ÷ 5 = 9

The answer is **1.69**.
