- Match this movement in the dividend
- Set up the long division normally
- Place the decimal point from the dividend directly above into the answer
- Divide normally
- Zeros may be written to the right of the decimal point after the final non-zero digit when needed

Dividing Whole Numbers with a Remainder:

- Set up the long division normally
- Place a visible decimal point after the final digit of the dividend
- Place the decimal point from the dividend directly above into the answer
- Divide normally
- Zeros will be written to the right of the decimal point as needed

Evaluating 10 Raised to a Natural Number
