#### Worksheet Overview

This activity is about the division of numbers with varying decimal places.

Example

Divide 5.04 by 1.4.

The first aim is to make sure that you are dividing by a whole number.

In this case, we can achieve this by multiplying both numbers by 10 to give us

50.4 ÷ 14

The answer to this and the original question is 3.6

Remember that you must multiply both the numbers by the same amount or the answer will be wrong!

Let's practise this in the questions that follow.
