Multiplying and Dividing Decimals
The Importance of it
Multiplying and Dividing Decimals are Important
How do we use Multipying and Dividing in the real world?
That's how we multiply and divide decimals in the real world.
When you multiply decimals you have to first pretend that the decimals aren't there.
Then you have to multiply the numbers like it's a regular number.
Once you are done multiplying, you have to count the decimal spaces in the original numbers and move the decimal from the end of your product that much.
That's how you multiply decimals!
When you divide decimals, first you have to make sure the divisor is a whole number. If it is, you can move to the next step. If not, you move the decimal to the right until the divisor is a whole number. Then you have to move that number of spaces to the right, that you moved the decimal on the divisor, to the dividend's decimal.
Then you divide.
When you're done dividing, you have to move the decimal in the dividend up into the answer. Right above it!!!
That's how you divide decimals!
