3.6 Dividing Decimals
EQ: How do you solve
problems involving the addition,
subtraction, multiplication, and
division of decimals?
(SPI: 0606.2.3) /CC.6EE.2b
To divide a decimal by a
whole number move the
decimal point straight up
and then divide as usual
Modeling .35 ÷ 7
Example 1

Terminating decimal is a decimal
number that ends, or
terminates in the quotient.
Let’s do a few together
8 27.2
Find the quotient.
0.24
3 0.72
0.72 ÷ 3
No more remainders……what will we do?
130 ÷ 20
Showing the Remainder as a
Decimal.

Place the decimal
point in the quotient
above the decimal
point in the dividend.
Add a zero to the
dividend.
Continue dividing.
You try this….
2÷3
Repeating decimal is a decimals that
one or more numbers repeat.
Now you try.
Hint: You may need to add more than one zero!

• To divide a decimal by a decimal move the decimal point
in the divisor over to make a whole number.
• Then you move the same amount of spaces in your
dividend.
