Educator Resources for Dividing Decimals

When you're splitting an expense among friends, what's the fastest way to figure out how much money each person owes? (Hint: it's the title of this topic.) Dividing decimals might seem complicated at first, what with all those pesky periods. But knowing how to solve these types of math problems is easier than you might realize. The simple trick: You can make those dots in the dividend and divisor disappear! Just remember to slip the decimal back into your quotient after you run through the long division. So hit the road with Tim, Moby, and the band as they rock some quotients and track the dancing dots!
