## Multiplying Decimals

**You might not realize it, but you multiply decimals everyday. If you are a server and you take peoples orders you multiply their food prices. When you go to the gas station and pay for your gas you multiply the number of gallons your car holds times the price of each gallon. You also multiply decimals with money.You multiply decimals with money when you have to pay the bills. Like when you are paying for your house you multiply how much it costs per week to get the total per month.**

## MoneyYou multiply decimals with money when you have to pay the bills | ## GasYou multiply decimals with gas to find out the number of gallons your car holds times the price for each gallon. | ## Waitress or ServerYou multiply decimals when you are a server because when you take peoples orders more than one person could eat the same food or the same price food and if that happened you would have to multiply the price by how many people that ordered it. |

## Dividing Decimals

## Party bagsYou divide decimals when you are at a party and you have 15.00 pieces of candy that you need to put into 5 party bags you need to divide 500 by 50. | ## MoneyYou divide decimals with money when you owe money and you have to split it between two friends and they are each owed the same price. To divide the owed money you have to divide the total money by two. | ## Running You divide decimals when you are running. Let's say that you ran four miles in two days and you burned 250.5 calories you would divide 250.5 by two to get how many calories you burned in each day. |
