# DIVIDING BY 10 100 and 1000 WORKSHEET

1. Divide 37.2 by 10.

2. Divide 37.2 by 100.

3. Divide 37.2 by 1000.

4. There are 16 pounds of cheese and it has to be equally shared into 10 people. How many pounds of cheese will each person receive ?

5. If a person covers 156 miles in 100 minutes, find his speed in miles per minute.

6. A factory announced bonus of \$256889 to 1000 workers. If the bonus amount is shared equally among the 1000 workers, find the share of each worker.

37.2 ÷ 10

Since 37.2 is divided by 10, move the decimal point one digit to the left.

37.2 ÷ 10 = 3.72

37.2 ÷ 100

Since 37.2 is divided by 100, move the decimal point two digits to the left.

37.2 ÷ 100 = 0.372

37.2 ÷ 1000

Since 37.2 is divided by 1000, move the decimal point three digits to the left.

37.2 ÷ 1000 = 0.0372

Since we are going to share 16 pounds of cheese equally to 10 people, we have to divide 16 by 10 to know the share of each person.

So, let us divide 16 by 10.

Since there is no decimal point in 16, we have to assume that there is decimal point at the end.

We divide by 16 by 10. So, we have to move the decimal point one digit to the left.

16 ÷ 10 = 16/10 = 1.6

Hence, each person will receive 1.6 pounds of cheese.

Given : 156 miles of distance covered in 100 minutes.

We all know the formula for speed.

That is,

speed = distance/time

speed = 156/100

Since there is no decimal point in 156, we have to assume that there is decimal point at the end.

We divide by 156 by 100. So, we have to move the decimal point one digit to the left.

156 ÷ 100 = 156/100 = 1.56

Hence, his speed is 1.56 miles per minute.

Since we are going to share \$256889 equally to 1000 people, we have to divide \$256889 by 1000 to know the share of each person.

So, let us divide 256889 by 10.

Since there is no decimal point in 256889, we have to assume that there is decimal point at the end.

We divide by 256889 by 1000. So, we have to move the decimal point one digit to the left.

256889 ÷ 1000 = 256889/1000 = 256.889

Hence, the share of each worker is \$256.889.
