Dividing decimals by whole numbers works the same way as dividing whole numbers except, just like addition and subtraction of decimals, the decimal point must be kept in line. When dividing by 10, 100 or 1000, remember to move all digits the correct number of places to the right.

When you divide by \(10\), each digit moves one place to the right. Hundreds become tens, tens become units, units become tenths and tenths become hundredths.

When you divide by \({100}\), each digit moves two places to the right.

When you divide by \({1,000}\), each digit moves three places to the right.
