**1. How to divide a decimal number with a whole number?**

If we have to divide the whole number with a decimal number then we will divide them as whole numbers but the decimal place will remain the same as it was in the original decimal number.

**Example**

Here we divide the number 1296 with 4 as normal whole numbers and we put the decimal at the same place from the right as it was in 12.96.

**2. How to divide Decimal numbers by 10,100 and 1000?**

a. If we have to **divide a** **decimal number by 10** then we will transfer the decimal point to the left by one place.

**Example**

b. If we have to **divide a decimal number by 100** then we will transfer the decimal point to the left by two places.

**Example**

c. If we have to **divide a decimal number by 1000** then we will transfer the decimal point to the left by three places.

**Example**

**3. How to divide a decimal number by another decimal number?**

To divide a decimal number with another decimal number

- First, we have to convert the denominator as the whole number by multiplying both the numerator and denominator by 10, 100 , etc.
- Now we can divide them as we had done before.

**Example**

Here we had converted denominator 2.4 in the whole number by multiplying by 10.Then divide it as usual .
