Long Division to Decimal Places
When we are given a long division to do it doesn't always work out to a whole number. Sometimes there are numbers left over. We can use the long division process to work out the answer to a number of decimal places.
The secret to working out a long division to decimal places is the ability to add zeros after the decimal point.
Example: 150 is the same as 150.00
We can add as many zeros as we wish after the decimal point without altering the number's value.
We will use the example below. It works out neatly to one decimal place:
