The procedure for the division of decimals is very similar to the division of
whole numbers.

How to divide a four digit decimal number by a two digit number (e.g. 0.4131 ÷ 17).

- Place the divisor (17) before the division bracket and place the dividend (0.4131) under it.
__ __
17)0.4131

- Proceed with the division as you normally would except put the decimal point in
the answer or quotient exactly above where it occurs in the dividend. For example:
__ 0.0243__
17)0.4131
