Dividing a Decimal by a Whole Number:

1. Set up the long division normally
2. Place the decimal point from the dividend directly above into the answer
3. Divide normally
4. Zeros may be written to the right of the decimal point after the final non-zero digit when needed

Dividing a Decimal by a Decimal:

1. Move the decimal point in the divisor by enough places right such that it becomes a whole number
2. Match this movement in the dividend
3. Set up the long division normally
4. Place the decimal point from the dividend directly above into the answer
5. Divide normally
6. 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:

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

Evaluating 10 Raised to a Natural Number

1. Write a 1
2. Write the exponent number of zeros after the 1

Dividing Decimals by a Power of 10:

1. Move the decimal point one place to the left for each zero in the power of 10
