At the end of this lesson, students should be able to divide a decimal number by another decimal.
Consider the number line below. How many times is 0.4 contained in 1-2?
Multiply the numerator and denominator by 10 to make the denominator a whole number.
(This does not change the value of the decimals as and any number multiplied by 1 remains the same without a change in value).
Based on this understanding, decimals can be multiplied by other decimals by following a few steps as follows:
