0.2 ÷ 0.1 = Step 1: We can think of the 2 decimals as 2 numbers. First we will move the decimal point to the right as follows:0.2 becomes 02.0 and 02.0 = 2.0 = 2; 0.1 becomes 01.0 and 01.0 = 1.0 = 1; then we get the following: 21 | 2 20 Note: When these two decimals are divided, the decimal point(.) in the answer moves to the right.Step 2: As a proof of our answer we can say:0.2 = 20/100 AND 0.1 = 10/100 then:0.2 / 0.1 = 20/100 = 20 x 100 = 20 x 100 =
2000 = 2000/1000 = 2 = 2 = 2.010/100 100 10 100 x 10 1000 1000/1000 1 Step 3: The answer can also be written as:2.0 = 2.00 = 2 = 200/100 = 200% Conclusion: We started out with two decimals and now have a whole number.0.2 ÷ 0.1 = 2.0 Close Window |
