Whole number and decimal division

STEPS


  1. Set up your division house.
  2. The whole/dividend is always the first number in the equation/problem.
  3. The divisor is the second number in your division sentence.
  4. put your divisor inside your division house and your dividend/whole outside.
  5. BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING BRING YOUR DECIMAL POINT STRAIGHT UP ON THE TOP OF YOUR HOUSE ABOVE THE DECIMAL IN YOUR DIVISOR!!!!!!!!
  6. If there is no decimal in your divisor do not do step 5.
  7. See how many times your whole goes into your divisor.
  8. Multiply that number by your whole and subtract from the divisor, then put the number you multiplied by above the divisor.
  9. Bring down any left over numbers from the top/your divisor.
  10. Repeat until your whole can not go into the number you got when you subtracted.
  11. If you have leftovers that is called the remainder
  12. Good Job!
