# DIVIDING DECIMALS BY 10 100 1000

When we dividing decimals, accordingly the number of zeros that we have in 10, 100, 1000…etc. we will move the decimals.

Dividing a decimal by 10 :

4.8 ÷ 10

Here, we have 10, it has one zero. So we have to move the decimal point to the left of one digit. Dividing a decimal by 100 :

2.7 ÷ 100

Here, we have 100, it has two zero. So we have to move the decimal point to the left of two digit. Dividing a decimal by 1000 :

0.6 ÷ 1000

Here, we have 1000, it has three zero. So we have to move the decimal point to the left of three digit. Find :

 a)  89 ÷ 10 Since it has one zero. we have to move the decimal point to the left of one digit. 8.9 b)  463 ÷ 10 Since it has one zero. we have to move the decimal point to the left of one digit. 46.3 c)  463 ÷ 1000 Since it has three zero. we have to move the decimal point to the left of three digit. 0.463 d) 463 ÷ 10000 Since it has four zero. we have to move the decimal point to the left of four digit. 0.0463 e)  0.8 ÷ 1000 Since it has three zero. we have to move the decimal point to the left of three digit. 0.0008 f)  0.73 ÷ 100 Since it has two zero. we have to move the decimal point to the left of two digit. 0.0073 g)  0.07 ÷ 100 Since it has two zero. we have to move the decimal point to the left of two digit. 0.0007 h)  0.083 ÷ 1000 Since it has three zero. we have to move the decimal point to the left of three digit. 8.3e-05 i) 0.0028 ÷ 10000 Since it has four zero. we have to move the decimal point to the left of four digit. 2.8e-07 j) 0.00051÷10000 Since it has four zero. we have to move the decimal point to the left of four digit. 5.1e-08
