## Where do you put the decimal after division?

When dividing by decimals, move the decimal point in the dividend the same number of places to the right as you move the decimal point in the divisor. Then place the decimal point in the quotient above the decimal point in the dividend.

### Where is the tenths place in a decimal?

The first digit after the decimal represents the tenths place. The next digit after the decimal represents the hundredths place. The remaining digits continue to fill in the place values until there are no digits left.

#### How do you place the decimal point?

The decimal point separates the whole number from the fractional part. In the number 258.16, the decimal point separates the whole number 258 from the fractional part 16, which is 16 hundredths. The decimal point is placed in between the ones and the tenths. The whole number is written to the left of the decimal point.

**What is a tenth decimal?**

## What is tenth in decimal form?

### How do you find three tenths of a number?

3/10 is equal to 0.3. Write the number without the decimal, which would be 3. Write “x 10^-1” following the 3, because the decimal is one position to the left of the 3. The full answer would appear as “3 x 10^-1.”

#### How do you round to the tenths place?

To round the decimal number to its nearest tenth, look at the hundredth number. If that number is greater than 5, add 1 to the tenth value. If it is less than 5, leave the tenth place value as it is, and remove all the numbers present after the tenth’s place.

### What happens when you divide decimals by 10?

Therefore, in a decimal division by 10, the decimal point will shift to the left by one place since 10 has only one zero over 1. From the above example, we can say that in the division of decimals by 10, 100 or 1000, the number and quotient digits will be the same.

#### What is the decimal point in Division by 10?

Thus, the digits in 97.5 and 9.75 are the same, i.e., 9, 7, and 5, but the decimal point has shifted (towards left) in the quotient. Therefore, in a decimal division by 10, the decimal point will shift to the left by one place since 10 has only one zero over 1.

**How do you find the division of a decimal number?**

Let us find the division of a decimal number by 10, 100 and 1000. Consider 97.5 ÷ 10 = 9.75. Thus, the digits in 97.5 and 9.75 are the same, i.e., 9, 7, and 5, but the decimal point has shifted (towards left) in the quotient.

**How do you divide fractions by tenths and hundredths?**

This video shows how to connect division by unit fractions to division by tenths and hundredths. 1. Divide. Rewrite each expression as a division sentence with a fraction divisor, and fill in the blanks. There are 10 tenths in 1 whole.
