Decimal Division Using Models

- Year 5 Maths

Divide a decimal number (up to hundredths place) by another decimal. Decimal Division Worksheet begins with problems on division with the help of visual models. Students can convert division by a decimal number into a division by a whole number. For example, the following two division expressions have the same result.
94.32 ÷ 3.2
÷ 32
Therefore, the method used to divide a decimal by a whole can be used to divide a decimal by another decimal. Note that the fluency in dividing and multiplying a decimal number by a power of 10 is of great use in the above method.
