DIVISION LESSON 75 1. Divide 1282.56 by 76.8. Operation As the dividend is the product of the divisor 76.8)1282.56(16.7 and quotient, the number of decimal places in the 68. dividend should equal the number in the divisor 5145 and quotient taken together. 4608 Since there are two decimal places in the divi-5376 dend and one in the divisor, there must be the 5376 difference between livo and one, or one decimal place in the quotient. 2. Divide 136.318 by 3.185. When there is a remainder, ciphers Operation may be annexed to the dividend and 3.185)136.3180(42.8 Ans. the division continued as shown in the 12740 operation. 8918 When the division will not terminate, 6370 and an exact quotient cannot be expressed 25480 decimally, the remainder may be ex-25480 pressed by a common fraction; or, when a number of decimal places sufficient for practical purposes has been obtained, the sign "+" may be annexed to indicate that the division is not complete. (See operations following.) 3. Divide 29.62 by 24. 4. Divide 56.285 by 6.3. OPERATION 24)29.62(1.23 Ans. 24 56 48 82 72 24 12 5. Divide 16.384 by.00256. When the number of decimal places in the divisor exceeds the number in the dividend, we make them equal by annexing ciphers to the dividend. 6. Divide.054 by 28.8. Sometimes ciphers must be prefixed to the quotient figures in order to make the number of decimal places equal the excess of the number in the dividend over the number in the divisor.
