Curriculum topic:   Number: Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Curriculum subtopic:   Divide with Two Decimal Places

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

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
