## How do you solve a divided by 10?

When we divide a whole number by a power of 10, the answer will have as many decimal digits are there are 0’s. Two 0’s. Two decimal digits. As we move up the list — as we push the digits one place right — the number has been divided by 10 because each place to the right is worth 10 times less.

**When the number is multiplied by 10 the counters move?**

When the number is multiplied by 10 the counters move place to the left. When the number is multiplied by 100 the counters move places to the left.

### Is multiplying by 0.1 the same as dividing by 10?

Dividing by 0.1 is the same as multiplying by 10. This is because there are 10 tenths in a whole. Dividing by 0.01 is the same as multiplying by 100. This is because 0.01 is one hundredth and there are a hundred hundredths in a whole.

**How many times can 5 enter 30?**

We now divide 30 by 5 (or find out how many times 5 goes into 30). Using our multiplication table we can see the answer is exactly 6, with no remainder.

#### When 0 is divided by (- 10 we get?

undefined

Any number divided by zero is undefined. Therefore, 10 divided by 0 is undefined.

**When dividing by 10 Do you move the counter?**

To divide the number by 10, we move the counters one column to the right. What is the value of the counters now? Here is a one-digit number on a place value chart.

## What does exchange mean in Division?

Exchanging occurs in short division when digits are moved to a lower value column to assist with the division. For example, in 42 divided by 3, one ten would be exchanged for 10 ones, giving 12 ones to divide by 3.

**What multiplication makes 36?**

1 x 36 = 36. 2 x 18 = 36. 3 x 12 = 36. 4 x 9 = 36.

### What does 0.01 mean?

0.01 is a decimal fraction and hence as it is only up to 2 places of decimal, it is equivalent to. 0.01=010+1100=1100.

**Why do you add a zero when multiplying by 10?**

Should you just add a zero when multiplying by 10? The ‘adding zeros’ trick can work when multiplying whole numbers by powers of 10, for example, 678 x 10 = 6780, 213 x 100 = 21300, 34 x 1000 = 34000, but this method completely falls down and is totally unsuitable when multiplying a decimal value by a power of 10.
