Teaching Dividing Signed Numbers with Decimals Easily

 

  • Whenever we divide a signed number with a decimal number of the same sign, always multiply the number with the reciprocal of the decimal number converted in a fraction i.e numerator will become the denominator and multiply the denominator of the fraction with the given number. If both are positive the answer will be positive only.


 

  • However, the division of signed numbers with decimals can be represented by multiplying the number and denominator of the decimal number that got converted into a fraction and the numerator will be the base.


 

Let us take the example mentioned below to understand more about dividing signed n with decimals.


 

Example 1: Solve for 3 /  4.2.


 

According to the question, both numbers are of the same sign. Hence, we can easily multiply them.

So,  3 / 4.2 = 3 / (42/10)  = (3 x 10) / 42 = 30/42
