## McGraw-Hill My Math Grade 5 Answer Key Chapter 6 Lesson 12 Use Models to Divide Decimals

You can use models to divide decimals by decimals.

**Build It**

How many groups of 8 tenths are in 2.4? Find 2.4 ÷ 0.8.

1. The model shows 2.4.

Answer: 2.4

Explanation:

2.4 ÷ 0.8= 3

Check: Use multiplication to check your answer.

0.8 × 3 = 2.4

2. Since you are dividing by tenths, replace both of the wholes with tenths.

Each whole equals how many tenths? _____________

How many tenths do you have altogether after replacing the two wholes with tenths? ____________

Answer:

3 tenths.

Explanation:

Since we are dividing by tenths, replace both of the wholes with tenths.

Each whole equals how many tenths 3

Separate the tenths into groups of eight tenths to show dividing by 0.8.

3. Separate the tenths into groups of eight tenths to show dividing by 0.8.

How many groups will you have? ____________

Are there any left over? _____________

Draw the result at the right.

So 2.4 ÷ 0.8= ______________.

Check: Use multiplication to check your answer.

0.8 × 3 = 2.4

Answer:

3

Explanation:

Since we are dividing by tenths, replace both of the wholes with tenths.

Each whole equals how many tenths 3

Separate the tenths into groups of eight tenths to show dividing by 0.8.

How many groups will you have : 3 groups

Are there any left over : nil

Draw the result at the right.

**Try It**

How many groups of 6 hundredths are in 3 tenths? Find 0.3 ÷ 0.06.

1. The decimal model shows 0.3.

How many hundredths are in 3 tenths? _______________

Answer:

5 hundredths.

Explanation:

0.3 ÷ 0.06 = 5

Multiply with 100 both sides to remove decimals.

0.3 x 100 = 30

0.06 x 100 = 6

30 ÷ 6 = 5

2. Separate these hundredths into groups of 6 hundredths. Draw the equal groups.

How many groups will you have? _____________

Are there any left over? _____________

So, 0.3 ÷0.06 = _____________.

Answer:

5 groups,

Nothing is left.

Explanation:

Number of hundredths are in 3 tenths = 5

Separate these hundredths into groups of 6 hundredths.

Draw the equal groups.

Number of groups will you have : 5 groups

Are there any left over = Nil

So, 0.3 ÷ 0.06 = 5

**Talk About It**

Question 1.

**Mathematical PRACTICE** Look for a Pattern The table shows some quotients. Study the table. Write a rule you can use to find the quotient of two decimals, both to the tenths place, without using models.

Answer:

Rule to convert whole number

Multiply both top and bottom by 10

for 2 digits after the decimal point so that is 10×10 = 1,00

for 3 digits after the decimal point so that is 10×10×10 = 1,000

\(\frac {24}{10}\) = 2.4

\(\frac {36}{10}\) = 3.6

\(\frac {28}{10}\) = 2.8

Explanation:

0.8 x 3 = 2.4

0.8 x 10 = 8

80 x 3 = 24

3.6 x 10 = 36

0.9 x 10 = 9

4 x 9 = 36

Question 2.

**Mathematical PRACTICE** Draw a Conclusion Use your rule from Exercise 1 to find 4.8 ÷ 0.8 without using models. Explain the process you used.

Answer:

6

Explanation:

Given, 4.8 ÷ 0.8

Multiply both sides with 10.

4.8 x 10 = 48

0.8 x 10 = 8

48 ÷ 8 = 6

6 X 8 = 48

0.8 X 6 = 4.8

**Practice It**

**Use models to find each quotient. Draw the equal groups.**

Question 3.

2.4 ÷ 0.3 = _____________

Answer:

8 equal groups

Explanation:

Given, 2.4 ÷ 0.3

Multiply both sides with 10.

0.3 x 8 = 2.4

2.4 x 10 = 24

0.3 x 10 = 3

24 ÷ 3 = 8

Question 4.

1.6 ÷ 0.4 = _____________

Answer:

4

Explanation:

Given, 1.6 ÷ 0.4

Multiply both sides with 10.

1.6 X 10 = 16

0.4 X 10 = 4

16 ÷ 4 = 4

Question 5.

0.1 ÷ 0.05 = ______________

Answer:

2

Explanation:

Given, 0.1 ÷ 0.05 = 2

Multiply both sides with 100.

0.05 x 100 = 5

0.1 x 100 = 10

10 ÷ 5 = 2

Question 6.

0.2 ÷ 0.04 = ______________

Answer:

5

Explanation:

Given, 0.2 ÷ 0.04

Multiply both sides with 100.

0.2 x 100 =20

0.04 x 100 = 4

20 ÷ 4 = 5

Question 7.

0.27 ÷ 0.03 = ______________

Answer:

9

Explanation:

Given, 0.27 ÷ 0.03 = 9

Multiply both sides with 100.

0.27 x 100 = 27

0.03 x 100 = 3

27 ÷ 3 = 9

**Apply It**

Question 8.

**Mathematical PRACTICE** Use Math Tools Grace purchased some packages of gum for $1.50. If each package costs $0.50, how many packages did Grace purchase? Use models to help you divide.

Answer:

3 packages.

Explanation:

Grace purchased some packages of gum for $1.50.

If each package costs $0.50,

Total packages did Grace purchase,

$1.50 ÷ $0.50

Multiply both sides with 100.

1.50 x 100 = 15

0.50 x 100 = 5

15 ÷ 5 = 3

Question 9.

Aidan purchased 1.5 feet of wood to make a napkin holder. If he used 0.5 foot of wood for each side, how many sides does the napkin holder have? Use models to help you divide.

Answer:

3 sides.

Explanation:

Aidan purchased 1.5 feet of wood to make a napkin holder.

If he used 0.5 foot of wood for each side,

Number of sides does the napkin holder have,

1.5 ÷ 0.5

Multiply both sides with 10.

1.5 x 10 = 15

0.5 x 10 = 5

15 ÷ 5 = 3

Question 10.

Ryan used 2.5 cups of flour to make bread. If he used 0.5 cup of flour for each loaf, how many loaves of bread did Ryan make? Use models to help you divide.

Answer:

5 loaves of bread.

Explanation:

Ryan used 2.5 cups of flour to make bread.

If he used 0.5 cup of flour for each loaf,

Number of loaves of bread did Ryan make,

2.5 ÷ 0.5

Multiply both sides with 10.

2.5 x 10 = 25

0.5 x 10 = 5

25 ÷ 5 = 5

Question 11.

**Mathematical PRACTICE** Explain to a Friend Explain how to use models to divide 2.1 by 0.7.

Answer:

3

Explanation:

To divide decimals using models,

first shade in the first number, your dividend.

Then, circle groups of the second number, your divisor.

The number of circled groups is your answer, or quotient.

2.1 ÷ 0.7

There are 7 groups.

So, 2.1 ÷ 0.7 = 3.

**Write About It**

Question 12.

How can I use models to divide decimals by decimals?

Answer:

Using models to divided decimals by decimals,

first we shade the decimal models to represent the dividend.

then we cut the models to groups that are each the size of divisor.

the number of same sized groups is quotient.

for each whole number we shade a 100 unit block.

Explanation:

For example;

2.4 ÷ 0.8= 3

Explanation:

Since we are dividing by tenths, replace both of the wholes with tenths.

Each whole equals how many tenths 3

Separate the tenths into groups of eight tenths to show dividing by 0.8.

How many groups will you have : 3 groups

Are there any left over : nil

Draw the result at the right.
