**Exercises Divide**

Question 1.

Answer: 0.5

The quotient is 0.5

Question 2.

Answer: 0.064

The quotient is 0.064

Explanation:

Change the divisor 3.12 to a whole number by moving the decimal point 2 places to the right. Then move the decimal point in the dividend the same, 2 places to the right.

20 ÷ 312 = 0.064

0.2 ÷ 3.12 = 0.064

Question 3.

Answer: 0.589

Explanation:

Change the divisor 0.56 to a whole number by moving the decimal point 2 places to the right. Then move the decimal point in the dividend the same, 2 places to the right.

33 ÷ 56 = 0.589

0.33 ÷ 0.56 = 0.589

Question 4.

Answer: 0.039

Explanation:

Change the divisor 0.76 to a whole number by moving the decimal point 2 places to the right. Then move the decimal point in the dividend the same, 2 places to the right.

3 ÷ 76 = 0.039

0.03 ÷ 0.76 = 0.039

Question 5.

Answer: 0.449

Explanation:

Change the divisor 0.89 to a whole number by moving the decimal point 2 places to the right. Then move the decimal point in the dividend the same, 2 places to the right.

40 ÷ 89 = 0.449

0.4 ÷ 0.89 = 0.449

Question 6.

Answer: 0.102

Explanation:

Change the divisor 0.784 to a whole number by moving the decimal point 3 places to the right. Then move the decimal point in the dividend the same, 3 places to the right.

80 ÷ 784 = 0.102

0.08 ÷ 0.784 = 0.102

Question 7.

Answer: 0.001

Explanation:

Change the divisor 45.45 to a whole number by moving the decimal point 2 places to the right. Then move the decimal point in the dividend the same, 2 places to the right.

9 ÷ 4545 = 0.001

0.09 ÷ 45.45 = 0.001

Question 8.

Answer: 0.0008
