  # Dividing by 0.1 and 0.01 (1)

In this worksheet, students divide numbers by 0.1 and 0.01. They should try to solve the problems in their heads first. Key stage:  KS 3

Curriculum topic:   Number

Curriculum subtopic:   Use Four Operations for All Numbers

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, we will learn how to divide by 0.1 and 0.01

Dividing by 0.1 is the same as multiplying by 10.  This is because there are 10 tenths in a whole.

Dividing by 0.01 is the same as multiplying by 100.  This is because 0.01 is one hundredth and there are a hundred hundredths in a whole.

Examples

19.21 ÷ 0.1 = 19.21 × 10 = 192.1

7190 ÷ 0.01 = 7190 × 100 = 719000

Notice that numbers get bigger when you divide them by 0.1 or 0.01
