  1. Are you talking about a problem like
    234.56 ÷ 54.321 using long division

    Your divisor (the last number should not have any decimals, so move the decimal to the end of it, counting how many places it was moved.
    Move the decimal of the dividend the same number of places.

    so 234.56 ÷ 54.321
    = 234560 ÷ 54321
