### Multiplying & Dividing Decimals

September 18, 2012

To model multiplication of decimals:

1. Shade in vertically the number of boxes represented by the first decimal.

2. Shade in horizontally the number of boxes represented by the second decimal.

3. The boxes shaded twice will give you the answer to the problem.

1) 0.4 x 0.5

Count how many squares are double shaded.

2) 0.2 x 0.1

2) 0.2 x 0.1

2) 0.2 x 0.1

2) 0.2 x 0.1

Count how many squares are double shaded.

1. Ignore the decimals.

2. Multiply as normal.

3. Count the number of digits to the right of all decimals in the problem.

4. Starting at the end of the answer. Move the decimal to the left the number of spots that you counted from step 3.

4) 15.4 x 6 =

4) 15.4 x 6 = 154x 6 924 92.4

Since there is one digit to the left of the decimal, we will move the decimal over right once in our answer.

5) 3.24 x 5.2 =

5) 3.24 x 5.2= 324x 52 648+16200 16848 16.848

5) The food service workers at Mountain Springs Elementary School begin their work at 5:27 a.m. and finish their days at 10:27 a.m. They work five days a week. If they make \$7.21 per hour, how much do they make in a week?

5:27 to 10:27=5 hours

x 5

\$36.05/day

x 5 days

\$180.25 each week

1. Move the decimal in the divisor to the end.

2. Move the decimal in the dividend the same number of places.

3. Bring the decimal point up.

4. Divide as usual.
