I was dividing decimals just then on a maths website and I got 7 wrong, I'll put the link to the questions below.
Math is Fun Worksheet
The questions I got wrong were, 1,8,9,10,11,12,13. Now I looked back at these questions and I can see why they had the answers they had. For example, the first question.
2.0/1.6, I got an answer of 1.25 however the answer is 0.8, looking back at the question it is obvious to realize that they just asked how many times does 2 go into 16. However I thought the 2.0 would become Twenty along with the 1.6 becoming Sixteen? Why doesn't it, why does it remain as a 2.0?
Also I thought the sum had to be 2.0/1.6 because 2.0 is the bigger number but the way they answered it, did they not make it 1.6/2.0? Why is this?
Thank you if you read through this, I hope you can help me out.
