**Dividing Decimals**

**Division means to divide things into equal groups.**

**Quotient- answer to a division question.**

**You have 6$ you want to buy fancy glitter pens to to enter the world scrapbooking Olympics. The pens are 40 cents each How many can you buy?**

**you can get 15 pens.**

**Describe a way to estimate the answer.**

**Round 40 up to 50 and 50 goes into 6 12 times because 50 two times = 1$ and 12 divided by 2 is 6**

**Where do you put the decimal?**

**15.4 Divided by 3.6= 4277778**

**round 15.4 to 15 and 3.6 to 3 or round 15.4 to 16 and 3.6 to 4**

**15 divided by 3= 5**

**both of these numbers are very close to four so we put the decimal in between the 4 and the 2 so your answer is 4.277778**

**4.4 divided by 0.42= 1047619**

**round up the 4.4 to 5 and the 0.42 to 5.0 or round down to 4 and 0.4**

**both those eqations equal 10 so you put the decimal between the 0 and the 4 to make 10.47**

**Here is a video that explains how to multiply and divide decimals.**

ReplyDeleteNice job Emily. I liked the font that you used. the only problem is that on one question, i think you made a mistake. 4.4 divided by 0.42. it said round 4.4 up to 5 and the 0.42 to 5.0. Other than that it was a good post.
