### Short Division Of Decimals

1. 1. Dividing a 3 Digit Decimal Number by a 1 Digit Number For Example: 93.8 by 7 Using Short Division For more maths help & free games related to this, visit: www.makemymathsbetter.com
2. 2. Firstly, put the larger number inside the division bar and the smaller number outside.
3. 3. Firstly, put the larger number inside the division bar and the smaller number outside. For example : 93.8
4. 4. Firstly, put the larger number inside the division bar and the smaller number outside. For example : 93.8 9 3.8
5. 5. Firstly, put the larger number inside the division bar and the smaller number outside. For example : 93.8 divided by 7 7 9 3.8
6. 6. Before you go any further you should put a decimal point above the division bar, directly above the decimal point below the division bar 7 9 3.8
7. 7. Before you go any further you should put a decimal point above the division bar, directly above the decimal point below the division bar . 7 9 3.8
8. 8. You can then complete the division sum as if you were using whole numbers. . 7 9 3.8
9. 9. Firstly, try to divide the number in the tens column (9) by 7 . 7 9 3.8
10. 10. Firstly, try to divide the number in the tens column (9) by 7 9 divided by 7 = 1 remainder 2 . 7 9 3.8
11. 11. Firstly, try to divide the number in the tens column (9) by 7 9 divided by 7 = 1 remainder 2 The 1 is placed directly above the 9 . 7 9 3.8
12. 12. Firstly, try to divide the number in the tens column (9) by 7 9 divided by 7 = 1 remainder 2 The 1 is placed directly above the 9 1 . 7 9 3.8
13. 13. Firstly, try to divide the number in the tens column (9) by 7 9 divided by 7 = 1 remainder 2 And the remainder (2) is placed next to the 3 in the units 1 . 7 9 3.8
14. 14. Firstly, try to divide the number in the tens column (9) by 7 9 divided by 7 = 1 remainder 2 And the remainder (2) is placed next to the 3 in the units 1 . 7 9 3.8 2
15. 15. Now, divide the new number in the units column (23) by 7 1 . 7 9 3.8 2
16. 16. Now, divide the new number in the units column (23) by 7 23 divided by 7 = 3 remainder 2 1 . 7 9 3.8 2
17. 17. Now, divide the new number in the units column (23) by 7 23 divided by 7 = 3 remainder 2 The 3 is placed directly above the 23 in the units column 1 . 7 9 3.8 2
18. 18. Now, divide the new number in the units column (23) by 7 23 divided by 7 = 3 remainder 2 The 3 is placed directly above the 23 in the units column 1 3. 7 9 3.8 2
19. 19. Now, divide the new number in the units column (23) by 7 23 divided by 7 = 3 remainder 2 And the remainder of 2 is placed next to the 8 in the tenths 1 3. 7 9 3.8 2
20. 20. Now, divide the new number in the units column (23) by 7 23 divided by 7 = 3 remainder 2 And the remainder of 2 is placed next to the 8 in the tenths 1 3. 7 9 3.8 2 2
21. 21. Finally, divide the new number in the tenths column (28) by 7 1 3. 7 9 3.8 2 2
22. 22. Finally, divide the new number in the tenths column (28) by 7 28 divided by 7 = 4 1 3. 7 9 3.8 2 2
23. 23. Finally, divide the new number in the tenths column (28) by 7 28 divided by 7 = 4 The 4 is placed above the 28 in the tenths column 1 3. 7 9 3.8 2 2
24. 24. Finally, divide the new number in the tenths column (28) by 7 28 divided by 7 = 4 The 4 is placed above the 28 in the tenths column 1 3.4 7 9 3.8 2 2
25. 25. To give the final answer; 93.8 divided by 7 = 13.4 1 3.4 7 9 3.8 2 2
