Divide 1062 by 1000 and then divide the result by 10. What number do you get?

To divide by multiples of 10, we move the decimal point to the left one time for every zero in the value. We’re taking 1062 and dividing it by 1000. There are three zeros in 1000. We need to move the decimal to the left three times.

Even though the decimal wasn’t expressly written, it’s always found to the right of the units place. We need to take it and move it to the left three times: one, two, three. 1062 divided by 1000 equals 1.062.

We need to take that value and divide it by 10. The number 10 has one zero, so we move the decimal place one time to the left. 1.062 divided by 10 equals 0.1062, zero decimal one zero six two.
