How to do it

First, line up your numbers and get rid of your decimal for now, and multiply like you would normally multiply.

Then,with your answer, count how many numbers are after the decimal in the numbers you were multiplying.

Next, with that number, count that many time from the back of your answer going to the left.

Finally, wherever you are in your number, place a decimal in that space, and then you have your answer. For dividing, all you have to do is ignore the decimal and divide regularly, and when you have your answer, just drag up the decimal from where it was in the first place.
