Lesson 13

DIVIDING DECIMALS

**Does dividing decimals by the traditional written method continue to serve any practical or
**

educational purpose? The fact -- the understanding -- on which that method is based is the

following, and we have addressed it:

If we multiply the dividend and divisor by the same number,

the quotient will not change.

(Lesson 11; see Problems 29 - 31 of that Lesson.)

We have already seen certain cases of dividing decimals. In Lesson 11 we used the division bar,

which is now the most useful form to indicate division. Nevertheless, in Lesson 12 we did

problems with the traditional division box. For the sake of those students still required to learn

division of decimals in that way, there remains only the case in which the divisor is a decimal.

But we have seen that the divisor must be a whole number. If the divisor is not a whole number,

then we have to multiply it so that it becomes one.

When the divisor is a decimal, what must we do?

**1)Multiply the divisor by 10, or 100, or 1000, etc., according to the number of decimal digits,
**

so that it becomes a whole number.
