## How to Multiply Decimals

*So let's say you have the numbers 5.25 and 2.74. If you cover up the decimal you will have 525 and 274 now. Then you multiply those 2 numbers and you add a decimal at the end of the number but just in front of two numbers which will be your answer / total.*

## How to Divide Decimals

*So let's say you have the numbers 3.58 and 7.16. If you cover up the decimal you will have the numbers 358 and 716. If you divide 716 by 358 you will get 222 now if you add a decimal to the middle of the answer / total you will now have 2.22 as your answer.*
