Numbers
Section 2.5
Objectives
• Divide rational numbers.
(NS 1.2)
• Simplify numerical expression
by applying inverse properties
of rational numbers. (AF 1.3)
Words to
Know
• Reciprocal Two numbers whose
product is 1. Also called
the multiplicative inverse.
To divide
fractions…

0.25 has two
decimal places so
multiple both
numbers by 100 to
make the divisor an
integer.
Then divide as a
whole number.

When n = 0.15,
Substitute 0.15 for n.
0.15 has two decimal
places, so multiply both
numbers by 100 to make
the divisor an integer.
