Perform the indicated operation by hand. Show or explain your steps. 17.525 ÷ 25?

Am I supposed to move the decimal over one? If I do then the answer is 7.01, if I don't then the answer is 0.701. I am confused.

  • Math -

    In a division problem, the first thing you do is put the decimal in the quotient directly above the decimal in the dividend.

    Your answer of 0.701 is correct.

  • Math -

    Since the divisor is a whole number, you don't need to change the decimal place.
