_________

1.) 22 l 39.7 **write it out **

____**.**___

2.) 22 l39.7 **bring up the decimal**

** **

** ___1.___**

3.) 22 l39.7 **see how many 22's can go into 39**

** __1.______**

4.) 22 l39.7**that amount of 22's you multiply and then subtract from 39 which is 17. **- __22__

**17**

___1._______

5.) 22l 39__.7 __ **then bring down your 7**

-__22__

17__7__

__ 1. 5 __

6.) 22 l39.7 **then see how many 22's go into 177**

-__22__

177

-__110__

__ 1 . 5 __

7.) l 39.7 **subtract**

-__22__
