Write the missing number to make
this division correct. 0.3 divided by what equals
To help us answer the question, we
can compare the place value of the digits in each of these two numbers. The three digit in 0.3 is worth
three tenths. And the three in 0.03 is worth
three hundredths. We can see that the three digit has
moved one place to the right. And this digit has become 10 times
smaller. To make the number 10 times
smaller, we need to divide it by 10.
0.3 divided by 10 equals 0.03. We used our knowledge of place
value to help us find the missing number.
