Example 1: Calculate the value after dividing the decimal number 12.4 by 0.8

Dividing the given two decimals, the expression looks like this  12.4/ 0.8

We can first convert them to whole numbers.

12.4 can be converted to a whole number by multiplying and dividing by 10.

(12.4 * 10)/ 10 è124/10

Similarly 0.8 can be converted to a whole number by multiplying and dividing by 10.

(0.8 * 10)/ 10  8/10

Now we have (124/10)/ (8/10)  (124/10) * (10/8) here ’10’ cancels

124/8 = 15.5

12.4/0.8 = 15.5


Example 2: Calculate the value after dividing the decimal number 6.24 by 1.64

Dividing the given two decimals, the expression looks like this  6.24/ 1.64

We can first convert them to whole numbers.

6.24 can be converted to a whole number by multiplying and dividing by 100.

(6.24 * 100)/ 100  624/100

Similarly 1.64 can be converted to a whole number by multiplying and dividing by 100.

(1.64 * 100)/ 100 164/100

Now we have (624/100)/ (164/100)  (624/100) * (100/164) here ’100’ cancels

624/ 164 = 3.805

624/ 164 = 3.805
