## Multiplying Decimals In The Real World

**Although you might think math isn't needed, but really you use it all the time without knowing it. Here are 3 of the ways you multiply decimals in the real world.**

**The first way you can use this in the real world is at a restaurant. You can use it when you are getting two or more of the same thing, so you have to multiply the price like this. **

**ex: A meal that you are getting is $2.14 and 2 other people want the same thing. So, you multiply $2.14 by 3 and get $6.42.**

**Now for the second way we multiply decimals in real life.**

**You use it when you are at the store. You can use it when you buy 4 mechanical pencils that cost $ 3.01. Look at the picture above for a quick and easy example.**

**Now for the final last way we multiply decimals in the real world! The final thing we use multiplying decimals is maybe going to the state fair or a park similar. Here's one last example. Say you have two other sisters. If each person has to pay like $3.20 you would have to multiply for each person. That was the last news report on multiplying decimals let's move on to dividing!**

## Dividing Decimals In The Real World

Ok so the first way we divide decimals in the real world is in a restaurant! Because, if you have a 50% coupon and the food is $4.24 you have to split it in half to find out how much you are going to pay.

The next place we use dividing decimals is the same as the restaurant, because this can also use coupons and you have to split the price. Take a guess on what it could possibly be, but I might as well say that it's the store.

The final place that we use dividing decimals is the state fair or again another similar park! It follows the same rule as the other two, you can use a coupon too and you have to split the regular price in half!

Ok, so do you see the pattern through out all these problems? Even multiplying decimals? Well the pattern is that you can use both multiplying and dividing decimals in all places, at the same time without knowing it. That's all 3 of them!
