Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will 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.




Division with decimal point



734 ÷ 2 = 367



7.34 ÷ 2 = 3.67




Use a written division to calculate:

8.45 ÷ 5




8 ÷ 5 = 1 r3

34 ÷ 5 = 6 r4

45 ÷ 5 = 9

The answer is 1.69.
