Unformatted text preview: the decimal point of dividend into consideration, join to its integer part the next digit of
fractional part and compare again the received integer part of a dividend with a divisor. If a new number is
again less than a divisor, put one more zero after a decimal point in a quotient and join to an integer part of a
dividend the next digit of its fractional part. Thus, repeat this process till the received dividend would be not
more than a divisor. After this one can fulfill the division as for integers. If a dividend is more than a divisor or
equal to it, divide at first its integer part, write a result of the division in the quotient and put a decimal point.
After this one can continue the division as for integers.
E x a m p l e . Divide 1.328 by 64.
S o l u t i o n: 0.02075 64 1.328
- 13 - 128

At first transfer decimal points in a dividend and a divisor by the number of decimal places of divisor, i.e. make
the divisor an integer. Now divide as well as in the previous case.
E x a m p l e . Divide 0.04569 by 0.0006.
S o l u t i o n. Transfer the decimal points to 4 places to the right and divide 456.9 by 6: 0.0006 0.04569 76.15
