Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, you must divide by numbers less than 1.

Remember that, when you divide by numbers such as ¼, you are seeing how many times a quarter goes into your number.  This will be more than the original number.

Remember also that all the following divisions will have the SAME answers:

2400 ÷ 40

240 ÷ 4

24 ÷ 0.4

2.4 ÷ 0.04

The easiest one to work out is 240 ÷ 4 = 60.


296 ÷ 0.04

Multiply both numbers by 100 so that 0.04 becomes a whole number.

29600 ÷ 4

Carry out the division to get 7400

296 ÷ 0.04 = 7400
