add a decimal in the dividend and write a zero. 3.0 6 Step 3: Bring your decimals straight up and divide like normal.
** There will not be remainders! 3.0 6 0. Step 1: Estimate what the quotient should be before solving. 34.4 2 2 34.4 How many times can we take 2 our of 34.4? Step 2: Bring your decimal STRAIGHT UP in your answer. 2 34.4 2 34.4
