Multiply both the dividend and divisor by 10 (move their decimal points
each one place to the right) to get a new division problem with the same
quotient: 1,217.7 ÷ 12.3 The divisor is still a decimal, so multiply by 10 (move the decimal points) again: 12,177 ÷ 123 12,177 ÷ 123 has the same quotient as 121.77 ÷ 1.23. By working out the division, 121.77 ÷ 123 = 0.99. Sounds like a bargain. |
