How Do We Use Multiplying and Dividing Decimals in the Real World

We use dividing decimals when we have to figure out percentage like with coupons at a grocery store.
Why It's Important
We use multiplying and dividing decimals in our everyday life and it saves us sooo much time. It's so much more accurate to multiply decimals because it is a lot more confusing to add up a ton of decimals at the same time.
