 # Multiplication and Division of Numbers by the Powers of 10 (0.1 - 1000)

In this worksheet, students must multiply or divide numbers by powers of 10 (0.1 to 1000). Key stage:  KS 3

Curriculum topic:   Number

Curriculum subtopic:   Use Four Operations for All Numbers

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

This worksheet is about multiplying or dividing by powers of 10, such as 0.1, 10, 100 and 1000.

Multiplying by 10, 100 or 1000

Each digit moves to the left 1 place, 2 places or 3 places.

Use zeros to fill in blank columns.

55.6 × 10 = 556

55.6 × 100 = 5560

55.6 × 1000 = 55600

Dividing by 10, 100 or 1000

Each digit moves to the right 1 place, 2 places or 3 places.

Use zeros to fill in blank columns.

55.6 ÷ 10 = 5.56

55.6 ÷ 100 = 0.556

55.6 ÷ 1000 = 0.0556

Multiplying by 0.1

Each digit moves to the left -1 place. This is really 1 place to the right.

55.6 × 0.1 = 5.56

Multiplying by 0.1 makes a number smaller.

Dividing by 0.1

Each digit moves to the right -1 place. This is really 1 place to the left.

55.6 ÷ 0.1 = 556

Dividing by 0.1 makes a number bigger.
