#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will practise dividing 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

7,190 ÷ 0.01 = 7,190 × 100 = 719,000

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